Some e their Completely barely Wind storms official estimate at l:30pm CDT. Tour participants got into the best corn seen thus far in IA/MN, with IA corn pegged at 152bpa compared to 138bpa last year and MN corn pegged at 157bpa versus 137bpa last year.

Weather forecasts show cooling today for much of the Midwest, with a chance of some scattered showers in the Ohio River Valley but generally dry elsewhere. Dry/hot conditions look to build in for the weekend, with temps Sun-Mon in the WCB expected to reach 95-105F and 88-98F expect- ed in the ECB.
