Alert Details

Corn earworm migration risks continue across the lower Ohio River valley southward into the mid-south as a new area of low pressure rides northeast along a cold frontal boundary.  Prolific rainfall amounts in addition to the time of the year precludes more than a Low risk through Wednesday morning, however.

Low corn earworm migration risks shift east into the Carolinas and Virginia during the Day 2 period as the cold front shifts east.  A new weather system is expected to emerge into the Plains states during the extended forecasting period and may result in some isolated to scattered corn earworm migration events in the lower Midwest and southern Corn Belt by late week and into the early portion of next weekend.
