The latest QPF forecast for this week shows that most of the Southeast is expected to receive less than half an inch of rain this week. This at the same time that temperatures are expected to continue to be above normal.  The one-two punch is expected to add a lot of stress to growing plants, especially those like peanuts who have high water needs right now.  Even corn, which is reaching the point of tailing down water needs at this point in its life, will need to be watched carefully.  Pop-up showers will continue to occur, but whether or not you get the rain where you need it will be very hit or miss.

The wettest locations will be in the Florida peninsula where sea breeze convergence will drive afternoon thunderstorms and the far northern reaches, where enhanced rainfall from the remains of TS Bill may occur.  The best chances for rain are after Tuesday.
