Commodity Weather Group Forecast


In North America, showers favored northeast ND, southeast KS, southern/eastern MO, far southeast IA, far west-central IL, western KY, far northwest IN, central WI, central/eastern MI, far northwest OH, eastern NC, northern SC, southern Manitoba, and southeast Saskatchewan in the past day. Highs ranged from the mid 70s to near 90 in most of the Midwest. Showers will stretch from the S. Plains into the northern Delta this weekend, with scattered activity returning Monday/Tuesday to a few

spots in the northwest Midwest. 6 to 15 day rains favor the central/southeast Midwest, with a slightly drier trend around the Great Lakes and wetter in the OH Valley since yesterday. Given recent rains and the outlook, the best chances for building moisture stress will likely focus on eastern SD, southeast ND, far northwest IA, far southwest MN, southern MI, and far northern OH (15% of Midwest) during the next two weeks, although yesterday’s rain did bring temporary relief to spots around the Great Lakes. Temperatures do warm, but most of the Midwest will peak into the upper 80s to low 90s during the 6 to 15 day. Mid 90s or better will be limited to the Delta, Plains, and occasionally spots as far north and east as SD and MO. However, the lack of more severe heat will continue to limit stress for pollinating corn, and the 16 to 30 day still offers some rain to drier

sections of the western corn belt and focuses heat/dryness risks on the southern Delta and northeast 1/4 of the Midwest.


In South America, Argentina was dry yesterday. Light showers may slow corn harvest next week but are limited mainly to southern fringes, with most areas dry in the next two weeks. Brazil was

dry yesterday. Showers cover much of the wheat belt in the next ten days, recharging low soil moisture and aiding growth. Corn/sugarcane harvest remains favorably dry for much of the next two

weeks, with minor interruptions from rains favoring the southern third later next week.
