What DTN Is Watching
Rain remains the concern in this week's forecast, especially from Missouri to Ohio. Tuesday tends to be a quieter news day, but financial traders will note a report of new home sales from the U.S. Census Bureau.Weather
Moderate to heavy rain is in store for the southeastern U.S. Tuesday. We'll also see light rain move across the northern and western Midwest and the southeastern Plains. Dry conditions will be in place elsewhere. Temperatures will be cool in the western growing areas, which will slow down crop development. Eastern areas will be seasonal, while in the northwestern U.S. and Canadian Prairies, notably above-normal values will be noted. The next seven days have wet conditions for the eastern Midwest through Southeast, with further hindrances to crop progress.
