Home > News > Weather Outlook: Record Moisture, Rainfall Haves and Have-nots

Precipitation this week has yielded one of the wettest starts to spring in Nebraska and parts of the central Plains and western Corn Belt. While that rainfall has been welcomed in many areas, there are notable absences of substantial moisture in the northern Plains, eastern Corn Belt and California, all areas facing recent precipitation deficits. Moving through the next few days, high wind and flooding could create issues for farmers in the mid-South and eastern Corn Belt, while winter weather advisories remain in the mix for parts of the Pacific Northwest. Thursday, watch for an unstable Gulf air mass to deliver potentially severe weather in the Southeast up through the Ohio River Valley. See more from the latest outlook.
