Across the Corn Belt, mostly dry weather accompanies a gradual warming trend. Any showers are limited to the upper Great Lakes region, where Tuesday’s high temperatures will remain below 80°F. In contrast, readings should top 90°F in parts of the Missouri Valley. By June 26, topsoil moisture was rated at least one-quarter very short to short in all Midwestern States except North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, led by Indiana (58% very short to short) and Nebraska (57%).
