OMAHA (DTN) -- More rain in the Midwest forecast and a drier trend in central Brazil are the primary weather features for the commodity market's attention Tuesday.
ONGOING MIDWEST RAIN FORECAST
The DTN ag weather forecast calls for several storm systems crossing the Midwest to continue to help ease dryness in the region. Soil moisture ahead of spring fieldwork is showing significant recharge.
MORE SOUTHERN PLAINS MOISTURE
In the Southern Plains, additional precipitation is in store this week. Recent heavy rainfall has eliminated or eased drought for much of the region. Showers this week will continue to offer beneficial soil moisture. Winter wheat that has broken dormancy finds generally favorable conditions.
LIMITED NORTHERN PLAINS PRECIPITATION
In the Northern Plains, a system is bringing moderate showers to eastern South Dakota, but most areas will see light or no precipitation through this weekend.
STORMS FOR DELTA
The Delta will have stormy conditions form during this week. Storms will bring a threat of heavy rain with disruption to planting progress.
DRIER CENTRAL BRAZIL PROSPECT
Central Brazil has only scattered light rain showers in the seven-day forecast. This drier trend combines with above-normal temperatures to bring concerns for the safrinha corn crop soil moisture. A couple of systems will bring showers to southern areas through the next week, continuing to ease concerns in this region.
HEAVY ARGENTINA RAIN FORECAST
Argentina has widespread moderate to heavy rain forecast during the next seven days. The rain will recharge soil moisture for filling corn and soybeans. However, some flooding is also possible with the prospect for very heavy totals.
