OMAHA (DTN) -- Mixed rainfall prospects in South America and mainly dry conditions across the interior United States are the primary features for the commodity market's attention Tuesday.

NORTHERN MIDWEST PRECIPITATION

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for light to locally moderate precipitation in the northern Midwest during the next week, coming as a mix of rain and snow. Other areas will be mainly dry. Moisture chances in the Ohio Valley increase in the eight- to 14-day time frame.

MINIMAL SOUTHERN PLAINS MOISTURE

Drought conditions remain in effect over much of the Southern Plains. Very little precipitation is expected outside of the northeastern corner of the region during the next 10 days.

SNOW FOR NORTHERN PLAINS

Northern Plains areas have snow indicated to cross the region during the midweek time frame. Temperatures are forecast to remain mostly above normal through the next 10 days. Seasonal cold is indicated during the 10- to 14-day period.

RAIN CHANCES FOR BRAZIL

The majority of Brazil's primary crop areas have moderate to heavy rain in the forecast through the next week. This will be useful for crop moisture. Heaviest amounts are indicated over northern and central areas; however, some southern areas could also see locally heavy rain.

POSSIBLE ARGENTINA RAINFALL

Argentina central crop areas received light to locally moderate rain during the first part of this week. Another system will move through late Thursday and Friday with additional widespread moderate showers. The pattern turns drier after this week. Most of the primary crop areas of Argentina are in drought, with rain offering limited benefit.
