What DTN Is Watching


Tropical moisture in the Gulf of Mexico will lead to heavy rains in Florida Tuesday. Scattered showers in the northeast and southwest areas of the Midwest, the northeast and central areas of the central Plains region and the west Texas area. Showers may favor late-filling crops in these locations but will be unfavorable for maturing crops and early harvesting. Drier elsewhere in the key U.S. growing areas.


Grains are expected to be relatively quiet Tuesday. While a possible recovery from Monday's sell-off is possible, buyers have little reason to get excited. Traders in general will continue to watch weather, though nothing threatening is expected. Financial markets have August consumer confidence data to look forward to.
