All the rain/t-storm action is in the Upper Midwest, here at 11:15pm on Tuesday evening.

 Here is the latest radar loop:

A few clusters of shwrs/t-shwrs in MN/WI and n. IA, places that don't have much planting done yet and will have to wait quite awhile before it dries out. 

They should be done with 50% of their corn planting right now in those areas but MN was only 9% done, the slowest of any state.

just got some comments from growers up the that wet area. Many in northern Iowa, S South Dakota, and S Minn. have not planted an acre. They got hammered again last nite and more on the way. Just west of there growers cannot buy a rain.  This is huge corn area that usually grows very big yields. Meanwhile down in S central Illinois one grower reports corn is up with outstanding start to his year

Thanks mcfarm,

Has been a year of extremes for planting but that is not completely unusual. 

Glad that the ECB did not get picked on again this year.

I remember your frustration last year, well into June when it stayed wet in many places of IN and there was a rain magnet over your area.

Last nights weather system hitting the wettest areas, now pushing east, across Lake Michigan and extending well south into #2 corn producer IL...........where much of the corn is planted.

Severe Storm Forecast Center has a risk of severe weather with some of these storms.

As the front stalls and energy feeds in from the west, with the next system,  the risk of severe storms will shift back west tomorrow and Friday.
