    Triple digits for about a week now. We haven’t had rain in so long we can’t remember, most fall crops are ruined. Luckily a cool front came through and we are only 95 today!

      85 to 90 degrees in the Elbert,Co. area with very little moisture. Crops and pastures are suffering but not as bad as some areas.

    70’s in northwestern Minnesota. Lots of rain, cool temperatures, and of course our long day length are making for a very lush wheat crop. Can no longer see the rows as the wheat enters the flag leaf stage. Could be a bumper crop in the making even with the late seeding.

    WEST PLAINS, MO: Highs have been hovering in the lower to mid 90’s.

    I thought it was pretty miserable hot yesterday driving wheat trucks with no AC! Come to find out it was 106! Probably with a heat index even higher too!

    The hottest we’ve seen hear in NWPa is in the mid 80s.

    Still not feeling like summer in Iowa. Mid 80’s, but the crops are growing well.

    It was nice yesterday with a high in the 80’s, but sunday was hot at a high of 101. We are in Ness county KS. we could use the heat to ripen the still green wheat left here to cut!

    I just returned from wheat harvest at my brother’s in McPherson, KS. Temperatures were the coolest I remember in years. We were only over 100 for one day. It was a much more comfortable harvest than we’re used to.
    We did have 2.5 in hail one evening but it was light and only did about 5% damage to the wheat. They’re so dry we were only out of the field one day.
    I paid for my college by working a wheat cutting crew based out of Lorraine, KS going from Texas to Canada so I’ve lived the life of the cutters we follow here and loved it. I wouldn’t have minded doing that for a living but I guess it wasn’t in the cards.

    We have had temperatures in the 70’s and 80’s in the last week. Quite a difference of temperature. Wheat is ripening fast and we may try yet this week. No rain for a while here, unlike the ponds this spring.

    like I said before we are not wheat harvesters corn and beans and hay- we are finally able to make some hay today with only about 1/2 inch rain on it. The temps here have been upper 70’s and low 80’s by the weekend we are to be HOT.

    The temperatures have changed rapidly. Starting at 94 the two days later being 80. It’s been crazy.

    Well Hopefully these people in texas and oklahome will have a better crop and cooler tempe next year .

    No triple-digit temperatures here. Things in south-central Nebraska (Kearney area) have been cooler than normal and it’s been very humid — we’ve had a lot of rain with some severe storms.

    We’ve only seen temps of 90+ a couple times this year. If the weatherman is right, the heat is on the way, with a forecast high in the lower 90s tomorrow and upper 90s Thursday — a good thing, because the latest NASS crop report said only 50 percent of the state’s wheat crop is turning, which is 8 days behind the 75 percent average for this time of year.

    Triple digits is a little extreme, but we could use some heat to move things along. Some farmers just to the south of here are usually starting wheat harvest now and wrapping it up around July 4. That’s looking unlikely this year.

    80s the last few days here in North Central Kansas. To be possible triple digits the next 2 days according to the national weather service with high humidity.

    WEST PLAINS, MO: Mid to upper 90’s with a heat index well into the triple digits.

    Here in the thumb of Michigan, our warmest day has been @95 maybe once, mostly in the 75-85 degree range. Our crops are slightly behind, mainly corn and sugar beets, dry beans are looking really good and wheat harvest will start around July 15th-20th. I’m surprised about the yeilds out west, around our area they average 80-100. It’s on my bucket list to help with the harvest marathon someday.

    Lawrence, Ks. the last few days have been great. Heat coming in tomorrow for the weekend, have been getting some rain got hail over the last weekend but not any real damage to the crops. Still working on wheat and planting after harvest beans.

    Hot in Talmage, KS. Yesterday was beautiful with high in upper 80s, but today is hot & humid with highs near 100 and climbing up the next several days.

    Around the Edmond, OK area it has been around the uppe 90’s to 105 past few weeks! Hay harvest will soon be started at our house.

    Last week high of 115, this week “COOLER” with just 108-110….I take 100 right now as a coldfront…no rain in 2 weeks forecast just 108-110.
    Had less then 2″ in 7 months. Last week hail to destroy our corn crop and a tornado…what a insult.
    What’s next on our list a flood to break this heat??

    It has been SO hot out here in NW Oklahoma. We’ve had highs of 110, & 112 last week, we actually felt like we got a COLD FRONT when it was only 93 earlier this week. we managed to get just over 1/2 inch of rain last night, but its way short of what we need.

    Triple digits here in Western Kansas today and forecasted for the rest of the week. We were blessed with favorable harvest weather to get the wheat crop off of the fields for ourselves and our customers. Praying for rain in the near future to save the fall crops that are needing a drink!
