Cold and snow will hit the Midwest this week, but it appears conditions will be good to finish the harvest, Successful Farming reported. Dale Mohler, AccuWeather meteorologist, says both U.S. and Brazil weather patterns look favorable. “The pattern is not 100 percent dry, but a lot of times if it goes colder, it means the northwest flow aloft shuts off any Gulf moisture from getting up into the Midwest,” Mohler said. He expects the next 10 days to be like that. The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Sunday reported that the corn harvest was 76 percent complete, within one percentage point of the five-year average. The soybean harvest was at 83 percent, six points behind normal.
