What DTN Is Watching

Light to moderate rain and mountain snow with some heavier through the Pacific Northwest as far south as northern California during Friday or Friday night. Snow across the northern Rockies region during this time. Little elsewhere in the key U.S. and Canada crop and livestock areas Friday.
