OMAHA (DTN) -- Variable conditions for harvest in the Midwest, and dry conditions interrupting soybean planting in central Brazil, are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Tuesday.

MIXED MIDWEST RAIN FORECAST

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for a mixed rainfall pattern in the Midwest. Moderate to heavy precipitation remains in the forecast for the central and north-central areas of the region, which will delay harvest. A drier trend in the northwestern areas will be more favorable for progress.

MOISTLY FAVORABLE SOUTHERN PLAINS TREND

In the Southern Plains, recent rains provide favorable soil moisture for germination and early development of winter wheat. Freezing conditions were noted overnight Monday into Tuesday; however, the effect is not expected to be serious.

SHOWERS IN SOUTHEAST

Southeastern U.S. crop areas have additional showers following the rainfall associated with former Hurricane Nate. The rain will delay harvest progress.

DRIER IN NORTHERN PLAINS

In the Northern Plains, drier conditions this week are more favorable for harvest.

CONTINUED DRY BRAZIL FORECAST

The central Brazil forecast remains dry through the balance of this week. This drier trend reduces soil moisture and will interrupt soybean planting. Planting progress in Mato Grosso is already lagging the pace of a year ago.
