Weekend Blizzard

The Weekend blizzard in the central plains and heavy rain storm is still a factor in the Ohio River Valley.  The wrap a round moisture from that storm will bring yet another round of fairly heavy rain in portions of Illinois and Indiana.  Plus, that region will experience well below average temperatures.  The combination of the two waves of moisture in combination with the very chilly early May temperatures will mean either the planting or in many cases the replanting of crops in that region will likely be delayed until at least next week with some localized areas probably not getting back out in the field for 10-14 days where it rained the hardest.
