Alert Details

As a cold front slowly pushes through the middle Mississippi River valley this weekend and into early next week, primarily weak southerly winds and associated precipitation may serve as a potential isolated to scattered corn earworm drop zone region across the mid-south region.  Any flights are expected to remain very limited due to the time of the year and widespread flooding that will limit available hosts.  No risk of corn earworm migration is predicted on Days 4-5.
