What DTN Is Watching


Thursday morning's weekly report of export sales won't yet have the purchases from China that everyone has been talking about, but will still be examined at 7:30 a.m. CST, along with weekly jobless claims. Later in the morning, natural gas inventory will follow. South American weather and trade remain topics of ongoing interest.


Light to moderate rain is in store for the southern Midwest, southeastern Plains, and the Delta Thursday. Some light rain and snow may also be noted in the southwestern Plains, while a swath of snow will work through the Northern Plains and northern Midwest. The interior Northwest will also have a round of rain and snow. Other areas will be dry. Very strong winds will develop in the southwestern Plains, causing travel hazards and some wind erosion.
