What DTN Is Watching

Entering the second full week of July, the latest weather forecasts continue to get first attention among grain traders, followed by any export news. USDA's weekly inspections report is out at 10 a.m. CDT, followed by a U.S. Treasury report on the federal budget at 1 p.m. and the Crop Progress report at 3 p.m. CDT.


Monday features a sharp contrast in temperatures over major crop areas. Northern and central regions will have seasonal warmth with favorable crop conditions. Meanwhile, southern regions will have extreme and stressful heat. Heat bulletins cover the far Southern Plains through the Deep South. Periods of thunderstorms are also in store across the northern tier and in parts of the Southern Plains at the edge of the heat dome.
