OMAHA (DTN) -- Higher chances for Midwest rain, and ongoing favorable conditions in the Black Sea region, are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Tuesday.
ADDITIONAL MIDWEST RAIN PROSPECT
The DTN ag weather forecast calls for a higher chance for additional rain in the central and eastern Midwest during the next week. Rainfall reaching moderate-to-heavy amounts are indicated in the forecast. Following a dry period during July and early August, the rain will provide timely crop moisture for filling corn and pod-setting soybeans. Crop progress continues to significantly lag the average pace due to planting delays caused by very wet weather during the spring season.
MIXED SOUTHERN PLAINS CONDITIONS
Southern Plains' crop areas have stressful hot and dry conditions during this week. The heat will accelerate the pace of row crop maturity, but may bring some loss in yield.
MORE NORTHERN PLAINS RAIN
Northern Plains' crop areas have normal to below normal temperatures ahead during the next week. Crop development continues to lag the average due to a wet and cool spring season.
MORE DELTA HEAT
The Delta and Southeast again have a very hot pattern indicated through this week. Heat stress will be notable, and may bring on some loss in crop yield. Hot and dry conditions will favor harvest progress.
VARIABLE PRAIRIES PRECIPITATION
The Canadian Prairies have a cool weather pattern with variable rainfall indicated during the next seven days. Moderate rains are forecast for the northern sector, with light amounts south. The cool pattern keeps crops behind the average pace in development.
FAVORABLE BLACK SEA TREND
In the Black Sea region, Russia and Ukraine have a continued pattern of mild weather and periods of rain. Crop prospects are favorable.
CONTINUED INDIA RAIN
Additional monsoon rains are occurring in west-central India, favorable for oilseeds and cotton.
