Scattered storms this weekend across the corn belt

Widely scattered storms will move in this Friday and through the weekend across the corn belt, with Wisconsin taking the brunt of the greatest storm activity. Most, though, will get through the next few days dry (total accumulated precipitation through Monday morning shown below). Drought conditions will likely worsen in the Dakotas as heat really builds in the northwestern part of the corn belt.
