This late season heat wave is taking its toll on Indiana crops.
Just a few weeks ago, the USDA predicted potentially record-breaking corn yields for Indiana - nearly double last summer's.
But now, experts have downgraded the the yield from "an exceptional year" to good.
The U.S. Drought Monitor indicates that most of Indiana is under "abnormally dry conditions."
August rainfall was down an inch and a half from normal.
And although it's too late in the season for the crop to recover, a widespread soaking rain could prevent further damage.
