What DTN Is Watching


Grain and oilseed traders could watch another round of rain falling across parts of the western Corn Belt as they wait for the weekend. Financial traders will keep a close eye on possible selling in global equities.


Light rain is in store for the western Midwest and south-central Plains Friday. We'll also see a few showers in the eastern Midwest and the Delta. Other primary crop areas will be dry. Temperatures will be seasonally mild north and central and hot south. Forecast guidance has a promising setup for moderate to locally heavy rain in drier areas of the western Midwest during next week.
