OMAHA (DTN) -- Continued rain prospects for northern and eastern Brazil, and ongoing favorable conditions in Argentina, are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Tuesday.

STORMY MIDWEST FORECAST

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for a new winter storm system to affect the Midwest during the middle of this week, bringing mixed precipitation to northern areas and rain in the south and east. Temperatures will show a wide contrast between cold north and warmer south.

FAVORABLE IN SOUTHERN PLAINS

In the Southern Plains, conditions remain generally favorable for overwintering wheat with adequate soil moisture. There is no damaging cold weather expected in this area.

SHOWERS FOR NORTHERN BRAZIL

Northern and eastern Brazil crop areas continue to have moderate to locally heavy rain forecast over the next week. This trend, if verified, offers improved moisture for later-season soybeans and the safrinha corn crop. Temperatures also display a milder trend after stressful midseason heat.

FAVORABLE ARGENTINA PATTERN

Argentina has a favorable forecast, with periods of light-to-moderate rain along with seasonal temperatures over the primary crop areas.
