OMAHA (DTN) -- A brief calmer period for the central U.S., and consistent rainfall in Brazil, are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Tuesday.
QUIETER WEEK IN MIDWEST
The DTN ag weather forecast calls for a mostly quiet week in the Midwest following harsh winter storm condition during the past weekend. A drier trend will be in effect through Friday. This drier scenario will offer some chances for late harvest progress. A new round of rain and snow is indicated during next weekend.
MIXED SOUTHERN PLAINS CONDITIONS
In the Southern Plains, conditions will be mixed over the next week. Drier conditions are in store through the end of the week. The six- to 10-day pattern brings in a new round of precipitation and variable temperatures. Soil moisture supply for winter wheat is ample. However, emergence and conditions are lower than a year ago due to wet and cool weather during this fall season.
ADDITIONAL BRAZIL RAIN
Brazil crop areas continue in line for moderate to heavy rainfall. Soil moisture will continue to be adequate to surplus for crops.
LIGHT ARGENTINA RAIN
In central Argentina, light-to-moderate precipitation remains in the forecast through this week. This trend will be more favorable for planting.
IMPROVED SOUTH AFRICA MOISTURE
South Africa crop areas have a variable temperature pattern with episodes of scattered showers, generally favorable for development of recently planted maize and developing sugarcane.
