The weather pattern is about to change, and it may stick around for a while. A big push of cool air will come down into the corn belt next week and the 6-10 day and 8-14 day outlooks have the below normal temperatures sticking around. Average high temperatures in July are in the lower 90's for southern NE and upper 80's for northern Nebraska, so we will be 10-15 degrees below normal for a few days with temperatures gradually warming up. The state will start to warm up from west to east as the system slowly moves east.
I study weather and climate impacts on agriculture, climate variability, and using weather and climate information to make better agricultural decisions.
