OMAHA (DTN) -- A continued rain forecast for late this week in Argentina, and additional periods of rain through central Brazil, are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Tuesday.
SNOW SQUALLS IN MIDWEST
The DTN ag weather forecast calls for several rounds of snow squalls in the eastern Midwest during the next couple days. The snow may cause some transport disruption. Western Midwest areas have seasonal to above normal temperatures and mainly dry conditions.
MORE SOUTHERN PLAINS DRYNESS
Southern Plains crop areas remain warm and dry through the next week. The warmth keeps winter wheat from complete dormancy and further stresses the crop. Drought conditions are building.
ADDITIONAL CENTRAL BRAZIL RAIN
Across central Brazil, periods of rain with moderate to locally heavy amounts remain in the forecast through the balance of the week. Drier conditions are suggested during the coming weekend. The drier trend will also offer more sunlight, which will be useful for soybean and corn development.
MOSTLY DRY IN SOUTHERN BRAZIL
Southern Brazil continues with a dry pattern through the balance of this week. The next rain chance does not appear until the seven-day timeframe.
CONTINUED ARGENTINA SHOWER FORECAST
Argentina's major crop areas have a continued promising forecast for moderate rain during the next seven days. Scattered showers also occurred during the past weekend, while temperatures stayed mild.
