Commodity Weather Group Forecast



In North America, showers favored northern/southeast Alberta, southeast Saskatchewan, north-central MT, east-central CO, northeast IA, and south-central/southeast MN in the past day. Patchy showers will continue in parts of the northern 1/3 of the Midwest during the rest of this week, but the primary rain opportunity arrives from Monday to Thursday. Models remain quite supportive, with better agreement today regarding placement. Favored areas (.50 to 2.5”) include NE, southeast SD, north-east KS, much of IA, southern MN, much of IL, southern/western IN, and southwest OH before heading into the TN Valley/ Southeast. This should aid moisture for about 3/4 of the corn/soy belt. 11 to 15 day showers then still become more limited. However, the GFS does pose a wetter risk in the eastern Midwest and Delta, as it nearly stalls the 6 to 10 day system to pro-long the rain event. Heat builds during the rest of this week in the corn belt, with the hottest day on Saturday. 90s are lik ely, with the hottest conditions in parts of MO, western IL, far southern IA, KS, NE, and SD. Notable heat retracts to the south-west Midwest early next week and then eases Tuesday, with 80s to low 90s for the balance of the 15-day period. The 16 to 30 day outlook remains warmer than normal, with the driest concerns in the southern 1/2 of the corn belt. Spring wheat conditions will remain mostly stable, with winter wheat harvest encountering only minor 6 to 10 day interruptions.


In South America, Brazil corn/sugar areas were dry yesterday, with the coldest spots in the upper 30s in the southern corn belt. Dry conditions aid harvest in the next 10 days, with 11 to 15 day showers in the southern 1/4. Frost is limited to far southern corn, mainly Sunday. Argentina corn/soy harvest will see limited delays in the next two weeks. Brief light showers reach the south late next week, with more persistent 11 to 15 day rain in the northeast 1/4 in the 11 to 30 day.
