OMAHA (DTN) -- Favorable rain in the Argentina weekend forecast and continued heavy rain prospects in southern Brazil are the primary weather features for the commodity market's attention Friday.

WEEKEND MIDWEST STORM

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for a weekend storm system to bring moderate precipitation to much of the region, followed by another in the middle and end of next week. This will have an overall positive impact on soil moisture but cause hazards for travel and transportation.

DRY WEEKEND IN SOUTHERN PLAINS

Across the Southern Plains, a warming trend through the end of the week will melt snow and allow soil moisture infiltration. A system this weekend will bring moderate precipitation to the eastern half of the region. Yet another system in the middle of next week looks more promising for increasing precipitation through the region. This is a favorable period for winter wheat moisture.

MAINLY DRY IN NORTHERN PLAINS

In the Northern Plains, a warming trend the next few days will reduce livestock stress. Precipitation will largely bypass the region with the next few systems moving through the country. Temperatures return to below-normal levels in the middle of next week, with increasing stress to livestock.

MIXED BRAZIL RAIN

Across Brazil, showers and thunderstorms continue in western and southern areas with variable precipitation amounts. Heaviest rains are indicated for the south with some threat of local flooding. Showers will disrupt soybean harvest with ongoing delays in the onset of safrinha corn planting. Northeast areas have light rain indicated with needed precipitation.

WEEKEND ARGENTINA RAIN

In central Argentina, showers continue to increase this week as a front stalls in the region through the weekend and likely much of next week. Showers will be timely for much of the crop that is heading further into reproduction.
