The US midwest has only had four years when temperatures averaged below freezing through mid-May. This year breaks the previous record by nearly a full degree.

Wow .. twenties overnight as far south as Nebraska … 30’s in Iowa and Wisconsin … Low 40’s through Oklahoma and into Texas even …
We are looking at 47° F for Friday night in mid NC. Average low is 56 °F.
Many low temperature record this morning, some by wide margins from South Dakota and Missouri down to Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana.
I’m sitting here with my space heater on as I type this. I blame myself for all those plastic bags I use.
Getting a little old here in MN
BEST will be along shortly to tell you you can’t average raw HCN temperatures. 3..2..1 …
Let them Freeze in the Heat!!!
You can not plant corn until the ground temperature is at LEAST 50°F or the seed rots in the ground instead of sprouting. From planting to harvest takes 55 to 95 days depending on the variety and the weather.
The USDA pegged the 2014 U.S. corn crop at 91.7 million acres, making it the smallest crop since 2010. The USDA is doing its usual RAH, Rah Rah go team: USDA: Fewer acres of corn but potential for record crop
In other words they do not have a clue this early in the year. For 2014, the USDA projected yield based on a weather-adjusted trend model that assumes normal mid-May planting progress and normal summer weather…
This is where all the LYING by NOAA/GISS comes home to roost. The USDA has to go along with the fiction of global warming which is bad news for the farmers who are foolish enough to believe them. Thank goodness most are not.
Another article for the big corn state of IOWA.
The 5 day forecast for Decorah, Iowa is:
48° F | 35° F
55° F | 36° F
60° F | 41° F
66° F | 46° F
66° F | 55° F
Not real good corn growing weatherwhere you want the ground temp to be about 55° F. Corn will germinate and grow slowly at about 50 F. Sweet corn according to Cornell Univ: Germination temperature: 65 F to 85 F – Will not germinate below 55 F.
Do we have a source of ground temperature where somebody is actively measuring and reporting it?
Any historical records as well?
The USDA has ‘Data’ see page 8
WEEKLY WEATHER AND CROP BULLETIN
Thanks. Page 8 seems to show soil temps.
Soil temp at 4 inches down will tell you wether or not the soil is warm enough to germinate the seed. Corn is planted 1.5 to 2 inches deep. Seed potatoes go into a four inch deep trench.
Funny … I’m getting a page that says the site is down due to a lack of funding. Seriously.
I pulled up the site a few hours ago and so did _Jim.
I wonder if the farmers that are foolish enough to believe the USDA can sue them for issuing misleading info?
The USDA knows farmers and ranchers are ticked off enough at the department that during recent ‘listening sessions’ they had armed guards…
I doubt any ranchers believe a word the US government says at this point. NAIS (National Animal Identification System) was the issue that first stripped the blind fold from my eyes. Long story short the idea was cooked up by the Ag cartel, WTO and the UN and shoved down the throats of US farmers and ranchers despite, as Darol pointed out “Well over 90% of the speakers were opposed to the feared program.”
The Federal register had over 5000 comments and I read most of them. I never saw a comment FOR NAIS. Never the less “a compromise was reached’ and we got NAIS with a different name attached. WhoopiEEee.
I expect to see a similar compromise reached about a carbon tax. Once the power behind the politicians comes up with an idea they hang on until they get it rammed through. Regulating farmers/NAIS took almost 20 years but they got it through congress during the 2010 Lameduck session.
(Do I sound cynical, I should.)
Looks like the USDA “officials” are quivering in their loafers….. And they’re not worried about lawyers. Tar and feathers and rails maybe…..
I was wondering what that was all about.
Not only that, it is WET. Very wet. I can’t believe how wet and we get to have another three inches of wet in the next 30 hours. Corn seed will rot.
As the term Hot and Cold are just relative terms and by using Einstein’s Special Theory of Relatives (they’re all illegitimate) IMO it’s been cold enough to freeze the balls on a brass monkey.
