Warm, dry weather patterns persist
The warm and dry weather continued throughout the state last week.
Statewide, temperatures averaged 57.7 degrees, 10.9 degrees above normal.
Total precipitation averaged 0.29 inches, 0.64 inches below normal.
As a result of the weather patterns, soil temperatures are warm enough for planting, and the majority of farmers have completed their pre-planting fieldwork. Most are waiting on the “go date” for their area to arrive, but many have at least some corn in the ground.
