OMAHA (DTN) -- Rain during the coming week in the Midwest, and improved chances for Argentina rain, are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Monday.

WETTER WEEK FOR MIDWEST

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for periods of rain across the Midwest during the coming week. The greatest activity will be in the eastern sector of the region. Soils will remain saturated, with disruption in fieldwork along with a threat of flooding.

SOUTHERN PLAINS PRECIPITATION

In the Southern Plains, frequent rounds of light rain or snow are in store for the region during the coming week. Moisture will be useful for winter grains exiting dormancy. No harsh cold is expected.

COLDER WEEK FOR NORTHERN PLAINS

In the Northern Plains, cooler to colder conditions are in store this week following a mild weekend. Precipitation will be light and scattered during the next five days. A new round of rain and snow in the six-to-10-day period is indicated in the forecast.

HEAVY DELTA RAIN

The Delta has a series of heavy rainstorms in store this week. The rain will produce a new threat of flooding in the region, along with disrupting spring fieldwork.

VARIABLE BRAZIL RAIN

Across Brazil, heavy rain is indicated for northern areas during the coming week, with light-to-moderate amounts in central and southern locales. Rainfall will offer milder conditions for second-crop corn growth and development. The rain is coming too late to prevent some loss in soybean production over far southern areas.

IMPROVED ARGENTINA RAIN

Argentina had beneficial showers and thunderstorms during the past weekend. Additional rain is indicated for central crop areas during the next five days.
