Ag. Weather Outlook 6-17-2014

by Tim Abramowski

A stationary boundary remains draped across the Lower Peninsula with storms riding along it. This wont be an all-day rain event for much of the rest of the week as the Sun breaks through at times. But the air will remain humid and instability born of southerly moist breezes will generate thunderheads giving us heavy rains, frequent lightning and small hail. Stay up to date with the hourly development of storms. Well likely see storminess develop over the southern two tiers of counties roughly between I-94 and the Indiana line as that stationary boundary slowly sinks to the south making Wednesday a thundery day. More rain is in the outlook for Thursday all the way through Saturday. Weve pretty much ended our growing degree day deficit, the latest crop and pasture survey says everythings in good shape. Common sense tells us not to declare victory just yet as we brag about our great corn growing weather. That next loud bump you hear could still be a hailstone.
