Moderate to heavy rain is in store for the eastern Great Lakes Friday, and light rain will cross the southern Canadian Prairies and far Northern Plains. Other primary U.S. and Canadian Prairies crop regions will be dry. Temperatures will be mild in all areas. This combination favors harvest except in eastern areas. Dryness continues in southwestern Plains and Delta winter wheat areas.


The most influential factor in the market Friday could be the continued strength of the U.S. dollar. Look for commodities, including grains, to struggle heading into the weekend. Speaking of grains, the complex has the added weight of favorable weather forecasts (except some eastern growing areas) for a busy corn and soybean harvest weekend.
