Across the Corn Belt, weekend thunderstorms, although isolated, resulted in some wind- and hail-related damage in parts of Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, and northern Missouri. Early Monday, a weak cold front is producing scattered showers and thunderstorms, primarily from the lower Great Lakes region into the Ohio Valley. Elsewhere, dry weather continues to promote corn and soybean maturation. Monday’s high temperatures should range from near 75°F in the vicinity of the Great Lakes to 95°F or higher in the lower Missouri Valley.
