DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Heat and little rain continue to intensify the drought in several states including primary crop growing areas. The national drought monitor report released Thursday says in Iowa, the nation’s largest corn producer, severe drought spread to nearly 42 percent of the state up from 32 percent a week ago.   The drought monitor tracks conditions from Sept. 3 through Tuesday morning.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says about a third of corn and soybeans are in good or excellent condition in Iowa down from more than half rated in those categories a month ago. In Nebraska, where drought increased in some areas, non-irrigated corn is in similar shape.

Drought worsened in portions of Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, and Wisconsin.

102-degree heat is latest for Iowa in 6 decades

September 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A state official says the 102-degree heat recorded this week in southern Iowa made it the hottest day this late in the year in six decades. State Climatologist Harry Hillaker says the 102-degree heat was recorded Monday at Donnellson and Keokuk. He says the last time a reading that high occurred this late in the year was Sept. 28, 1953, when 100-degree readings occurred across nearly half of the state.

He says that in all, high temperatures have reached 100 or more 109 times in 38 different Septembers. He says most of those winters were followed by less snow than usual, but one was among the coldest and snowiest winters on record. Bottom line? He says, “with hot September weather you always need to be prepared for anything in Iowa.”

Tuesday’s High in Atlantic was 95, just three degrees shy of the record high for Sept. 10th.
