State Senator Joe Leibham to not seek recount for last week's election

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Joe Leibham will not seek a recount for last week's 6th House District Republican primary.

Despite long winter, 3% of U.S. corn crop has been planted

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - It seems hard to believe as this long winter continues -- but three percent of the nation's corn crop has been planted already.

The USDA says Wisconsin is among 10 major corn growing states with nothing significant in the ground yet. That stands to reason, since much of the state has just received a fresh coating of snow -- and more is in the forecast for Tuesday night and Wednesday in the northern half of Wisconsin.  

That's not exactly conducive to getting field work done. But it's nothing new, either.  

At this time last year, Wisconsin was among nine major corn states with virtually nothing planted yet. Nationally, only two percent of the corn was in by this time in 2013.

The average is six percent in the past five years.

A recent bout of warmer weather has quickly disappeared in the Badger State. Temperatures at 6 a.m. ranged from 7-below at Land O'Lakes to 27 at La Crosse. Tuesday's statewide highs won't get any warmer than the mid-30's. Parts of the state could see 40 Wednesday.
