What DTN Is Watching


Friday looks like it will offer one more day of planting possibility before more rains return the next six days. Forecasts will continue to be watched. The Fed will release its report of U.S. industrial production at 8:15 a.m. CDT, followed by the University of Michigan's report on consumer sentiment at 9 a.m.


Light to moderate rain is in store for the central and western through northern Midwest Friday. Rain expands across the remainder of the Midwest and Plains during the weekend. The rain will cause new disruptions in planting and interfere with winter wheat harvest, along with creating new flood threats.
