Windy, dry conditions have been a major feature of the ag weather in the last few days, and they’ve fueled grass fires in parts of Kansas. Meanwhile, frost and freeze risk is high through the mid-South and points south. High winds will continue in central Plains and Southeast through Thursday and toward the end of the week, meaning fire risk will remain high as temperatures remain well below normal as far south as southern Mississippi. This weekend and into next week, a warm front will push those cooler temperatures out of the country; next week, temps could be as high as the 80s in parts of South Dakota and Iowa, potentially accelerating conditions favorable for spring corn and soybean planting. Looking further out, the trend is toward seasonal temperatures in the Corn Belt and cooler-than-normal weather in the Southeast. See more from the latest outlook.
