Dry conditions continue to spread in Midwest

Southern Iowa, northern Missouri, Illinois and a large swath of Indiana are showing abnormally dry conditions from last week.

However, the weekly drought monitor has some information, many in the Midwest don't want to see at this point in the growing season.
