OMAHA (DTN) -- Limited drier periods for the late U.S. harvest, and continued rain forecasts for South America, are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Friday.

UNSETTLED MIDWEST PATTERN

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for slow Midwest harvest progress due to recent rain. Some additional rain for the eastern Midwest is indicated through the weekend. The six-to-10-day period is likely to feature more rain and in some areas snow, further delaying the final harvest effort.

BRIEF WARMER NORTHERN PLAINS TREND

In the Northern Plains, snow cover and wet conditions due to melting snow mean delays to late-year harvest progress. A brief round of drier conditions and milder weather offer some improvement into early next week. Beyond that time frame, the weather pattern is more uncertain.

VARIABLE SOUTHERN PLAINS FORECAST

The Southern Plains forecast offers increasing precipitation over the region during the next 10 days. Moisture is especially needed in southwestern Kansas, which has severe to extreme drought indicated. There is no significant cold expected in the region.

CONTINUED BRAZIL RAIN FORECAST

Across Brazil, moderate to heavy rain continues in the forecast for all major crop areas during the next week. Rainfall would be beneficial.

FORECAST ARGENTINA RAIN

Rain continues in the Argentina five-day forecast, with near-general coverage. Rainfall will be mostly beneficial for crop moisture.
