What DTN Is Watching


Most of the day in the grain and oilseed complex should be spent watching weather forecasts heading into the three-day holiday weekend. However, the wildcard is whatever the new headlines are coming out of Washington, D.C. Friday, the White House in particular. Financial markets have a number of reports set for release including April durable goods and May consumer sentiment index.


Light rain is in store in portions of the northern Midwest, southeastern Plains, and Far West Friday, with the Southeast having light to moderate rain. Other crop areas will be dry. Temperatures will be well above normal in the large majority of crop areas. The next seven days have very heavy rain in the Southeast; moderate to heavy rain in the northern tier; and light to zero elsewhere. Very warm to hot temperatures will stress crops in south-central and southwestern areas.
