OMAHA (DTN) -- Rain developing in central Argentina, and favorable conditions in highest production areas of Brazil, are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Wednesday.
MIDWEEK ARGENTINA RAIN
The DTN ag weather forecast calls for moderate to locally heavy rain to ease dryness concerns in central Argentina during the next few days. That rain is beginning. The rainfall will ease crop stress from drier conditions.
FAVORABLE CENTRAL BRAZIL TREND
Central Brazil has a favorable pattern of mild weather and periodic showers for crop development. Drier conditions indicated during the next week will be helpful following recent moderate to heavy rain.
SHOWERS IN SOUTH BRAZIL EXTENDED FORECAST
Southern Brazil crop areas have showers indicated in the next week to 10 days. This forecast will be closely tracked. The region has turned drier recently.
EASTERN MIDWEST SNOW
Several rounds of snow are in store for the northern and 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. Strong winds will cause some transportation disruption.
SOUTHERN PLAINS STAY DRY
Southern Plains crop areas will stay dry with warm weather through the next seven to 10 days. The warmth keeps winter wheat from complete dormancy and further stresses the crop. Drought conditions are building.
