OMAHA (DTN) -- Wet fields in the central U.S., and mixed rainfall tendencies in South America, are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Monday.
WET MIDWEST CONDITIONS
The DTN ag weather forecast calls for wet fields in the Midwest after a stormy Thanksgiving holiday weekend to hinder late-harvest efforts during the first half of this week. Drier and milder conditions in the six-to-10-day period offer some chance for progress before mid-December.
NORTHERN PLAINS BLIZZARD IMPACT
In the Northern Plains, blizzard conditions during the holiday weekend further hindered late-harvest efforts. Some corn will be left in the fields until spring. Livestock may have also incurred stressful conditions due to snow, cold and strong winds. The pattern offers milder conditions during this week as the region remains drier and not as cold.
FAVORABLE IN SOUTHERN PLAINS
The Southern Plains had some favorable rain for winter wheat during the past week. This week is mainly dry with mild weather. Western sectors are in need of additional moisture.
CONTINUED BRAZIL RAIN FORECAST
Across Brazil, the past week brought favorable rainfall for developing soybeans. Continued rain is indicated during this week.
DRIER ARGENTINA PATTERN
Central Argentina has a drier pattern through the coming week. Near to below normal temperatures will reduce soil moisture loss. Crop conditions are generally favorable at this point in the season.
