What DTN Is Watching

USDA's weekly export sales will be out at 7:30 a.m. CDT Thursday, the same time as weekly U.S. jobless claims and an update of the U.S. Drought Monitor. U.S. new home sales for April will be out at 9 a.m., followed by the U.S. Energy Department's weekly natural gas storage report at 9:30 a.m. More rain is expected to keep field conditions wet in Nebraska and Iowa after Tuesday's storms.


A front that has stalled itself out near the Ohio River will continue to produce scattered showers and thunderstorms from the Southern Plains up through the Mid-Atlantic on Thursday. Some of those thunderstorms could be severe. Another system is entering the Northern and Central Plains and will produce showers and thunderstorms of its own. Severe weather will occur with this storm as well, with the greatest threat in eastern Nebraska.
