OMAHA (DTN) -- More rain in store for the central United States during the next week and only limited precipitation benefit for the Brazil winter corn areas are the primary weather features for the commodity market's attention Monday.

WET MIDWEST FORECAST

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for moderate to heavy rain across most of the Midwest during the next seven days. This wetter period follows substantial corn and soybean planting progress and brings favorable soil moisture to most sectors of the region. The eastern portion has lighter precipitation in store.

CONTINUED SOUTHERN PLAINS RAIN

The Southern Plains continue with a forecast for moderate to heavy rainfall during the coming week. Rain is beneficial for row crop and cotton soil moisture. Developing wheat may incur disease due to the wetter and cloudier pattern.

ADDITIONAL NORTHERN PLAINS MOISTURE

In the Northern Plains, the past seven days featured beneficial moderate rainfall. Additional rain is in the forecast through the next seven days. Temperatures will trend below normal to slow the pace of crop development.

DELTA RAIN PROSPECTS

The Delta has several periods of showers in the forecast for later this week through the coming weekend. Rainfall from these systems will be favorable for corn, soybean and cotton moisture.

DRY AND HOT SOUTHEAST

The southeastern U.S. will stay mainly dry with very warm to hot weather during the next seven days. This pattern is beginning to take up soil moisture and will be watched for possible stress to crops.

MORE PRAIRIES MOISTURE

The Canadian Prairies had beneficial moderate to heavy precipitation during the past weekend. Additional activity is in store this week. This more active pattern is offering some drought relief.

MINIMAL BRAZIL RAIN BENEFIT

Winter corn areas in Brazil continue to have significant heat and drought stress. Rainfall during the past weekend and in the forecast is offering some benefit only to the southern portion of the corn areas.

DRY ARGENTINA PATTERN

Central Argentina has a drier pattern in the seven-day forecast. This will favor additional row crop harvest progress.

EUROPE SHOWERS

Periods of showers and generally below-normal temperatures are in store for most of Europe crop regions this week. Crop moisture is favorable at this time.

VARIABLE RUSSIA MOISTURE

A variable precipitation pattern is forecast for Russia and Ukraine crop areas during the next week. Southern Russia and eastern Ukraine have moderate rainfall amounts ahead, offering continued moisture benefit. Other crop areas will be drier.
