FAVORABLE MIDWEST COMBINATION
The DTN Ag Weather forecast has a generally favorable combination for Midwest corn and soybean planting, emergence and early development. Periods of showers are in store during the next seven days, along with below normal temperatures. Rainfall will interrupt fieldwork and planting; however, planting progress is running well ahead of average. Moisture will favor seedling emergence and early development of row crops.
MORE SOUTHWEST PLAINS DRYNESS
Southwestern Plains areas will continue to have mainly dry conditions through the next week, further stressing winter wheat and offering unfavorable conditions for planting cotton. This portion of the region will also be very warm to hot Monday, with record heat very likely. Eastern areas will see heavier rainfall along with severe storm potential.
NORTHERN PLAINS RAIN AND CHILLS
Moderate to locally heavy rain will cross the Northern Plains during the first part of the week. The rain will favor soil moisture for spring wheat and row crops. The region turns colder during late week with some frost and light freeze potential. The cold is not expected to be damaging.
