Soil Temperatures


Central Illinois-There have been a few questions asking about soil temperatures coming in via email and social media. Giving an exact number is hard because there are only 5 reporting sites across central Illinois. We can look at the data from those sites and interpolate the information to give an estimate for other locations.
