OMAHA (DTN) -- Cold conditions over the central U.S., and consistent rainfall in Brazil crop areas, are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Tuesday.

COLD SPELL FOR MIDWEST

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for an improving weather pattern for Midwest harvest over the next week to 10 days. Colder but mainly drier conditions are in store after early-week precipitation. This will favor later-stage row crop harvest.

COLDER IN SOUTHERN PLAINS

In the Southern Plains, lower temperatures during the next week will slow the rate of winter wheat germination and early development. A drier trend by late week will be more favorable for seeding the remaining crop.

SNOW FOR NORTHERN PLAINS

In the Northern Plains, a round of snow and rain during the rest of the week will disrupt harvest. Snow is most likely over western portions of the region.

BRAZIL STAYS FAVORABLE

Brazil crop areas have, again, mostly favorable conditions for development of early planted soybean and full season corn.

ARGENTINA RAIN FORECAST

In central Argentina, moisture is adequate for planting and early crop development. Additional rain is forecast for later this week. This event will bear watching for possible heavy rain and flooding.

SHOWERS FOR CENTRAL CHINA

Central China crop areas continue with scattered showers in store this week, favorable for winter grains and oilseeds.

DRY PATTERN IN INDIA

Across India, dry weather favors planting for winter wheat and rapeseeds. An uneven monsoon rainy season means some locations may be short on irrigation and soil moisture to support these crops.
