Some farmers hoping for more rain

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  After all the rain we had a few weeks ago, it's hard to believe that many Wisconsin farms are short on moisture. The National Ag Statistics Service said 20-percent of farm fields in the Badger State were short of moisture as of Sunday -- and 3-percent were very short.

A number of county reporters said the crops look good, but we could use some rain.

The National Weather Service says a series of weak low-pressure systems is going through the Badger State this week. There will be at least a chance of showers and thunderstorms each afternoon.

Meanwhile, cool temperatures continue to slow the maturity of the Wisconsin corn. 44-percent of the corn is silked, up 22-percent from a week ago but still eleven points behind the average for the past five years.

Soybean blooms are now 5-percent ahead of the norm after a strong spurt in the last week.
