OMAHA (DTN) -- Cold and snowy conditions to further delay harvest in the eastern Midwest, and continued rainfall for Brazil's crop areas, are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Friday.

DISRUPTIVE EASTERN MIDWEST CONDITIONS

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for moistly dry conditions and more variable temperatures in the western Midwest to favor remaining harvest. Some snow early in the weekend will disrupt activity, however. Meanwhile, snow, ice and rain that fell Thursday night and Friday will maintain a slower pace for late-fall harvest and fieldwork in the eastern Midwest. There is some chance that conditions in the eastern Midwest will improve with time.

CHILLY IN SOUTHERN PLAINS

Southern Plains' areas will have below to much below normal temperatures through the weekend. This chilly pattern is unfavorable for wheat establishment.

ADDITIONAL BRAZIL RAIN

Brazil crop areas again have favorable conditions for developing soybeans. Additional rain is indicated through next week.

PERIODIC SHOWERS IN ARGENTINA

In central Argentina, recent heavy rains are disruptive to corn and soybean planting and may force some replanting. Winter wheat harvest has also been affected. The next week again features lighter precipitation, which may allow for some progress in wheat harvest and row crop planting.

EASTERN AUSTRALIA SHOWERS

Eastern Australia has a chance for moderate to heavy rain during the next week. The rain will benefit summer crops, but is too late for drought-affected wheat.

HOT WEEKEND FOR SOUTH AFRICA

South Africa crop areas will be hot and dry through the weekend. High temperatures in the maize areas will focus in the 90s to low 100s Fahrenheit.
