What DTN Is Watching


With another weather-market weekend approaching it would not be surprising to see grains rally, unless weather forecasts have added better chances of rain for much of the U.S. Midwest. Otherwise, the grain complex could spend the day positioning ahead of what is expected to be an explosive Sunday evening opening.


Moderate to heavy rain and flash flooding is in store for portions of the northern Midwest Friday, and thunderstorms with light to moderate rain will form in portions of the western Midwest. Other primary U.S. and Canadian Prairies crop regions will be dry. South of the rain area, exhausting and intense heat will again stress crops and livestock.
