OMAHA (DTN) -- A dry and open pattern for central U.S., and continued rain prospects in central Brazil, are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Monday.

DRY FOR MIDWEST HARVEST

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for an early-week dry pattern in the Midwest. This trend will favor harvest. Showers cross the region during the Wednesday-to-Friday timeframe, bringing some interruptions to progress.

MIXED SOUTHERN PLAINS OUTLOOK

Across the Southern Plains, dry conditions the first half of the week will be more favorable for winter wheat planting. Moderate to locally heavy rain develops later in the week, which will interrupt further planting along with row crop harvest.

EARLY-WEEK NORTHERN PLAINS DRY TREND

In the Northern Plains, drier and milder conditions for early week will favor harvest progress. Light rain during midweek may interrupt activity.

NEW ROUND OF DELTA RAIN

In the Delta, light to moderate rain during midweek may bring a new round of harvest delays, after light to moderate rains during the weekend.

MOSTLY DRY IN PRAIRIES

In the Canadian Prairies, a mostly dry pattern through the weekend will favor harvest efforts.

CONSISTENT BRAZIL RAIN

Brazil soybean areas have a consistent pattern of showers in store this week. Soil moisture is favorable for planting and early soybean development.

FAVORABLE ARGENTINA PATTERN

In central Argentina, a variable temperature pattern and episodes of scattered rains will favor development of early-planted corn and any early soybean planting.

CONTINUED DRY EUROPE TREND

Northern and central Europe crop areas remain dry. This is unfavorable for winter crop establishment.
