Across the Corn Belt, snow showers and squalls are limited to areas downwind of the Great Lakes. Elsewhere, cold, dry weather is conducive to corn and soybean harvest activities in fields where soils are dry enough to support heavy equipment. On November 4, more than one-quarter of the soybeans remained in the field in Michigan (74% harvested) and Missouri (64% harvested).
On the Plains, cold conditions are in place. An early-season snowfall is occurring in an area broadly centered on Kansas, further delaying harvest activities and halting winter wheat development.
