Alert Details

Another potentially strong low pressure system is predicted to develop in the western Plains states by early next week. South to southwest winds are anticipated to develop to the east of the low pressure system, especially by Tuesday into Wednesday next week. The greatest risk for black cutworm migration is across eastern Texas at the present time. Corn is emerging in some areas of the state, so at least Low risks are justified and as the track/strength of the system becomes more clear, we may increase risks early next week. Otherwise, no additional black cutworm risks are in the forecast at this time.
