Alert Details

A strong low pressure system will move through the heart of the corn-growing region today into tomorrow with a cold front trailing to its south. South to southwest winds ahead of the front along with at least scattered precipitation areas should lead to some scattered black cutworm moth flights into especially the eastern portion of the corn-growing region. Moderate risks are in place from central/eastern Illinois into Indiana, western Ohio, and southern lower Michigan. Low risks extend from Missouri and western Illinois north into southern Wisconsin, lower Michigan, and east into southern Ontario, Canada, Ohio, and Kentucky. Little to no additional risks are predicted after tomorrow as the weather pattern shifts back to dominant northwest flow.
