Alert Details

A dominant northwest flow weather pattern should keep any black cutworm migration events to a minimum for much of this week. By late week and into the weekend, however, at least a chance at some isolated flights does coincide with some southerly flow ahead of a cold front. Low migration risks are predicted generally west of Lake Michigan Thursday night into Friday and then between I-35 and I-75, or from Missouri, Iowa, and Minnesota east as far as lower Michigan and western Ohio Friday night into Saturday as this front passes. The potential for a more favorable migration setup may be in store next week beyond this forecasting period.
