OMAHA (DTN) -- Beneficial rain developing in central Brazil and a warmer and drier pattern for Argentina are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Monday.
DRY WEEK IN MIDWEST
The DTN ag weather forecast calls for dry conditions in the Midwest during this week. The drier pattern will be accompanied by above-normal temperatures, with favorable conditions for the final stage of harvest. The pattern turns more unsettled during the end of the week with rain and snow prospects increasing.
DRY SOUTHERN PLAINS PATTERN
In the Southern Plains, a week of dryness is expected before the next system moves into the region late in the week. Any moisture is still indicated to largely bypass the driest areas of the southwestern Plains.
MILD IN NORTHERN PLAINS
In the Northern Plains, dry and mild conditions are in store through the first half of the week. Lower temperatures and some snow are possible late in the week through the coming weekend. Drought is expanding in the region.
DRIER TREND FOR SOUTHEAST
Southeast crop areas have a dry forecast through this week. This dry pattern will be helpful for the late stages of cotton harvest.
RAINS FORM IN CENTRAL BRAZIL
Central Brazil crop areas had moderate to heavy rain occur during the past weekend. Additional rains are forming in the region during this early week. These rains are beneficial for soybean development. Southern Brazil has lighter rain forecast during this week.
LIGHT ARGENTINA RAIN
Argentina crop areas have light rain with temperatures turning higher during the week. This trend will be closely watched for possible stress to row crops.
