Alert Details

Corn earworm migration risks will continue in the forecast for the next two nights as a hot and humid weather pattern fueled by gusty south to southwest winds feeds into the corn-growing region. It is still a little early in the growing season for large-scale corn earworm moth flights into the corn-growing region, thus only Low risks are in the forecast despite the very favorable weather pattern expected to be in place. Low risks are predicted tonight from Kansas and Missouri northeast as far as central Minnesota and Wisconsin, with Low risks then shifting east tomorrow night into Sunday morning to mainly between I-35 and I-75, or from central Iowa and southeast Minnesota into southern lower Michigan and western Ohio. No additional risks are predicted after midday Sunday as the cold front should continue on east and southeast.
