It was a mixed bag for future trade on Monday- that mixed bag is carrying over to weather in the midwest as we start the first full week in 2020.
We are seeing mild weather in the central and eastern parts of the country. These condition along with cold areas in the west, present a recipe for stormy conditions this week. The storm that is expected to come off of these conditions is likely to impact much of the southern and eastern Midwest this week.
These areas include Missouri, eastern corn belt and Mississippi Delta. Rain will start on Thursday. The precip will continue on and off leading into Saturday. A mix of snow will be included in the precipe when it ends in the eastern corn belt.
With already over-saturated fields and rivers, and no vegetation to absorb the moisture, this could call for more flooding ahead.
Mike Palmerino, DTN Meteorologist says we could be losing touch with reality when it comes to how cold the midwest should be for this time of year. Temperatures in the midwest have consistently run double digits above normal for this time of year.
In the Northern Plains and Western corn belt, it seems quite for the week. There are chances of small amounts of precipitation for the week, with mild temperatures. In the heart of cattle country, these conditions provide optimal conditions the cattle production, this week.
