Good crop-filling weather in coming days

Our regular weather contributor Daniel Bezte is on holidays, so his usual weekly forecast is unavailable for this week.

So here is a compilation of what other forecasters are predicting for the days ahead.
Environment Canada is calling for highs in the low to mid-20s over the coming days. After a cool start to the week, with overnight temperatures dipping into the single digits, nighttime temperatures are expected to hover in the 10 C to 13 C range. There is a mix of sun and cloud most days, and a chance of rain Thursday, Aug. 1.

Brett Anderson with Accuweather is calling for seasonal temperatures for the forecast period for Manitoba. Northern regions and farther west are expected to be warm and dry, while regions to our south are getting cooler and wetter conditions.

Reuters is reporting cool temperatures and rain in some dry areas across the U . S . Midwest this week, making for good conditions for corn pollination.

MDA Weather Services forecast that temperatures around much of the Corn Belt will start out in the low 20s this week before rising towards the week’s end.

Temperatures in the Midwest were expected to remain cooler than usual for the next 15 days, which MDA meteorologist Don Keeney said was near ideal for corn, which was pollinating later than usual due to planting delays this spring.  World Weather Inc. said weather looks good for corn pollination and all areas of the Midwest will get some rain.
