Alert Details

Moderate corn earworm migration risks continue for the next couple days especially across portions of Kansas and Missouri closer to active source regions in the mid-south and into northern Texas. Persistent south to southwest winds to the east of a stalled cold front are expected to originate in northern Texas and southern Oklahoma and blow north. Precipitation will also be possible especially in the western portion of the Moderate risk area which may further enhance insect drop out. Low migration risks extend as far north as the Iowa-Minnesota border and also into Indiana and Ohio by Thursday night and into Friday morning as the whole weather system moves east.
