Alert Details

Low black cutworm migration risks have been placed in the forecast during the Sunday night into Monday time frame from far eastern Kansas into Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, far western Ohio, and Kentucky ahead of a weak low pressure system that is expected to develop in the Plains states. The source region is expected to be in the mid-south and southern states where black cutworms are likely present, so some isolated moth flights may occur during this somewhat narrow time window. Otherwise, little to no black cutworm migration risk is predicted at this time between now and the end of the weekend.
