Alert Details

Low black cutworm migration risks are in the forecast tonight into tomorrow morning especially across the Ohio River valley. A cold front is predicted to continue to push to the southeast through the day today, and should keep any south to southwest winds across the southeastern portions of the corn-growing region. Precipitation is rather widespread in both the source region and further northeast across the risk area, plus wind speeds are predicted to be slower in comparison to last night so only Low risks are in the forecast. Low risks return to the forecast by Friday night into Saturday morning after a break tomorrow night as the next weather system develops in the central and southern Plains. Fields mainly west of the Mississippi River across Kansas and Missouri are at risk of isolated moth flights by that time with fields across the Ohio River valley again at risk by Saturday night into Sunday morning as another cold front pushes to the southeast.
