Worrisome long-term weather maps for spring wheat country and into the western Corn Belt

( )

The National Weather Service’s forecast favors warm weather across northern and western areas of the Midwest. Cool weather is likely in eastern areas of Texas and Oklahoma and across Mississippi and Arkansas. There are equal chances for normal, below-normal and above-normal precipitation across other areas of the Central and Southern Plains and the remainder of the Midwest. Precipitation maps for next month are dry for the far western Corn Belt, wet for the far eastern Belt and inconclusive in between. Wet weather is also likely from eastern Texas to the Northeast.

Ninety-day temperature maps favor heat across most of the country, with the exception of the Gulf Coast area up through northeast Kansas and Missouri where there are equal chances for normal, above-normal and below-normal precipitation. Wet conditions are most likely across the eastern third of the U.S. over to the southeast corner of Texas, with dry conditions likely across the western half of the country and into the Upper Midwest.
