OMAHA (DTN) -- Dry late-week Midwest harvest conditions, and only scattered rainfall in central Brazil’s forecast, are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Thursday.
BENEFICIAL MIDWEST HARVEST PATTERN
The DTN ag weather forecast calls for favorable dry harvest conditions the next two days. Showers will cross the region over the weekend with some harvest disruption. However, drier conditions return next week.
FAVORABLE IN SOUTHERN PLAINS
In the Southern Plains, favorable dry conditions for planting winter wheat and harvesting summer crops remain in place.
WEEKEND SHOWERS FOR DELTA
The Delta and southeastern U.S. continue with a dry and mild pattern for harvest and fieldwork through the end of the week. Some showers are indicated during the weekend. Moisture will be favorable for winter wheat.
DRY AGAIN IN NORTHERN PLAINS
In the Northern Plains, another round of mild and dry conditions will favor harvest progress.
LIGHT CENTRAL BRAZIL RAIN
Across Brazil, scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected in central Brazil on Sunday, but likely not enough to end dry concerns. Meanwhile, a wet pattern in southern Brazil delays fieldwork and planting.
FAVORABLE ARGENTINA PLANTING CONDITIONS
Central Argentina has a mostly dry pattern in effect through the weekend. This is favorable for corn planting.
DRY FOR UKRAINE HARVEST
Ukraine and southern Russia have favorable fall harvest conditions.
