Yesterday’s mid-day GFS model took more precipitation out of the morning’s already drier model run. The forecast for the remainder of July has shifted from favorable to not so favorable in just a couple of days. Weather maps indicate that rain coverage this week has been spotty at no more 40% of the key areas. The best remaining chance for rain in the Eastern Corn Belt is through today. After that, the current forecast indicates a strong potential for stress to increase.
