What DTN Is Watching


Weather continues to be the main attraction of 2019 with milder temperatures expected in the week ahead. USDA's weekly report of export inspections is at 10 a.m. CDT, followed by USDA's monthly cold storage report at 2 p.m. and Crop Progress at 3 p.m.


Rain, showers and thunderstorms will occur Monday along a cold front stretching from the northeast U.S. and the northern middle Atlantic region west-southwest through Kentucky and Tennessee through the lower Miss river valley. Cooler and much cooler weather associated with this frontal boundary and also through areas north and west of these areas will greatly reduce stress on developing crops, especially after recent extreme heat and humidity. Cool temperatures in the Northern Plains and Canadian Prairies regions will keep development of crops significantly behind normal.
