More wet weather parts of the Corn Belt; new showers develop on the Plains, storms south

Across the Corn Belt, lingering showers will sustain a slow pace of fieldwork, although Midwestern producers in and around Illinois may see a window of opportunity for planting.  As of May 13, Illinois farmers had planted 42% of their corn (versus the 5-year average of 56%) and 39% of their soybeans (43% on average).

On the Plains, strong thunderstorms, with the possibility of excessive rain and hail, may develop during Wednesday in southern farming areas, with the highest probability centered over Oklahoma.
