OMAHA (DTN) -- Rain for only the short term in South America and limited moisture for the interior United States are the primary features for the commodity market's attention Wednesday.

MINIMAL MIDWEST PRECIPITATION

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for very little Midwest precipitation during the next week. Northern areas have 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. Dry soils remain a notable concern ahead of the 2021 crop season.

COOL AND DRY IN SOUTHERN PLAINS

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.

COLDER NORTHERN PLAINS PATTERN

Northern Plains areas have a blustery and colder trend in the forecast through the end of the week. Snowfall will be variable but mostly light. Low temperatures remain in place through the 10-day time frame. However, little to no additional precipitation is indicated.

CENTRAL BRAZIL RAIN CHANCES

Northern and central Brazil crop areas have moderate to locally heavy rain in the five-day forecast. Southern Brazil has light rain prospects. Moisture will be favorable for northern and central crop areas. The lighter amounts over southern areas will lead to concern about moisture deficits during the balance of the crop season.

SHORT-TERM ARGENTINA RAINFALL

Argentina central crop areas have rain in the forecast during Thursday and Friday. The pattern turns drier after this week. Most of the primary crop areas of Argentina are in drought, with rain offering limited benefit.
