Commodity Weather Group Forecast


In North America, thundershowers favored southern KS, northern/western OK, parts of West TX, southeast CO, southwest MO, central TN, central KY, far southeast IN, far southern OH, northeast NC, and north-central Alberta in the past day. 90s were limited to far southwest corn belt yesterday, but heat returns this weekend. Most areas peak in the upper 80s to low 90s, with stronger heat focused on the southwest 1/4 of the belt. While still warmer than normal overall, odds for severe heat

are otherwise then limited through early and mid-July based on our current forecast, as the hottest  weather focuses west of the corn belt. A frontal passage this weekend will bring scattered showers across the Midwest, but the best chances for rain focus on parts of NE, southwest IA, KS, western MO, and WI. Rains also favor the far southwest corn belt in the 6 to 10 day, while the 11 to 15 day shifted slightly wetter in the MS Valley and southern Midwest. Given an expectation for expanding 16

to 30 day rain in the western corn belt, this will put the northeast 1/3 of the corn belt at most risk for building rain deficits in early July. Expanding rains from late next week into early in the 11 to 15 day will aid moisture in most of the Delta to improve soy/cotton and late corn growth. Late Plains wheat harvest interruptions will occur but should not be serious. Diminishing moisture and expanding heat for N. Plains/southern Canada spring wheat in the 6 to 15 day will be a limited concern for now.


In South America, Brazil corn/sugar areas remain dry for the next two weeks, allowing harvest

to accelerate. Rains in southern wheat areas are mainly beneficial later next week. Argentina remains dry through today. Rains expand across wheat areas Saturday through Monday, alleviating

dryness. Rains later next week will slow late wheat seeding/corn harvest in the northeast 1/4 of

the belt, with localized flooding possible. Drier 11 to 15 day conditions should ease excess wetness.
