Alert Details

Isolated to potentially scattered black cutworm moth flights will be possible the next two nights ahead of a low pressure system expected to traverse the corn-growing region. While not as strong as last week’s system, there is still the expectation for some gusty south to southwest winds ahead of a trailing cold front to the south of the low pressure which could bring some black cutworm moths north into especially the central and eastern corn-growing region. Low risks are in place tonight into tomorrow morning from central Kansas and eastern Nebraska east into Iowa, Missouri, and Illinois. The Low risk area shifts east to mainly east of I-35 from Missouri and Iowa into Illinois, southern Wisconsin, lower Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and southern Ontario, Canada tomorrow night into Thursday morning as a cold front moves east. Little to no additional risks are in the forecast thereafter into the weekend.
