South America Calling

What DTN Is Watching


There is a scarcity of economic reports on Tuesday after the President's Day holiday. DTN will be watching for updated South American weather and harvest activity, along with any news on coronavirus (COVID-19), and especially news on China granting duty-free import licenses for U.S. soybeans and ag products.


Tuesday features additional rain in the Delta, Ohio Valley, and the Southeast, with continued flooding. The central U.S. will have several rounds of light mixed freezing precipitation and snow, causing some travel and safety issues. Conditions will be cold north and seasonal to above normal central and south. No polar vortex-related cold outbreak is indicated in the upper-level pattern.
