What DTN Is Watching


Moderate to heavy rain is in store for the Delta through Ohio Valley Thursday. We'll also see light showers in the northwestern Plains and northern Midwest. Other primary U.S. and Canadian Prairies crop regions will be dry. Temperatures will be mild for the season in northern and central areas, and hot south and west. Overall conditions are favorable for row-crop development. Extreme heat will again cover the Southwest and Far West.


Early Thursday has grains rallying, partly on support from the lower U.S. dollar index in reaction to Wednesday's Federal Reserve statements. Next up are weekly export sales and shipment numbers as well as weekly jobless claims. After that, grain traders will turn their attention back to extended weather forecasts.
