Alert Details

A cold front is predicted to move southeast from the eastern Plains states into the southwest Great Lakes region by late tomorrow or Thursday. After that, however, the front is likely to move back north as a warm front in response to a developing area of low pressure in the northern Rockies. Southerly winds are expected east of the front today but overall should be only light in speed, thus Low risks are predicted mainly east of I-35 to I-75 in southeast lower Michigan and western Ohio. Low migration risks are found across much of the corn-growing region by late week and into next weekend as southerly winds envelop a large area as temperatures and moisture levels increase on southerly winds. We could potentially see an upgrade to a Moderate risk in some areas by the weekend depending on how a frontal boundary settles south, so stay tuned for future forecasts this week!
