OMAHA (DTN) -- Cool central U.S. weather, and an attention-getting pooling of colder air in northern Canada, are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Tuesday.
COOL MIDWEST CONDITIONS
The DTN ag weather forecast calls for below-normal temperatures across the Midwest the rest of the week. This slows down crop progress and leads to some caution about potential frost damage at the end of the season.
VARIABLE SOUTHERN PLAINS SHOWERS
Southern Plains crop areas will have variable shower occurrences over the next week. Far southern sectors may see heavy rains from former Tropical Storm Harvey. Cooler weather is also in store for the region. Heavier rains are not expected for the High Plains cotton areas of western Texas.
LIMITED NORTHERN PLAINS RAIN
Very little meaningful rain is indicated for the drought-affected Northern Plains over the next week.
POSSIBLE PRAIRIES CHILL
A developing colder pool of air in northern Canada will be watched closely for the chance of bringing frost to the Canadian Prairies over the next week.
LATE-SEASON UKRAINE HEAT
Above- to well-above-normal temperatures with little rainfall have been noted through much of Ukraine and Russia during the past two weeks, but especially through south and east Ukraine and in south Russia. Soybean and sunflower crops are most susceptible to possible stress.
