Commodity Weather Group Forecast



In North America, weekend rains favored central/northeast MT, central/northeast ND, northern/far southern SD, southern MN, central NE, IA, southwest WI, northeast IL, central/northwest IN, northwest OH, eastern GA, SC, and NC. Mostly mid 70s and 80s occurred across the Midwest. Showers continue to scatter into the central Midwest in the next two days. Heat gradually builds through the week in NE/KS/MO/SD, with upper 90s and 100s by the latter 1/2 of the week. Elsewhere, heat

peaks Thursday to Saturday, with upper 90s in the central Midwest and mid 90s in most other areas. This will mainly threaten stress to pollinating corn in NE/KS/SD (where the hottest readings occur) and in parts of northeast IN/northern OH/MI (where the most notable rain deficits exist) but should impact 20% or less of the Midwest as a whole given recent rains and the short duration. Temperatures moderate for the balance of the month, as the strongest ridging retrogrades west of the belt. Rain chances shifted farther south in the 6 to 15 day due to the relatively less hot pattern, adding to rain chances from the S. Plains into the Delta but limiting Midwest shower potential. However, the 16 to 30 day continues to limit the main threats for stress to about 1/4 of the Midwest (mainly around the Great Lakes). While a broad warmer than normal pattern remains possible,

rains also return from the Plains into the southern/western Midwest and northern Delta.


In South America, weekend rains were light across southern Argentina. Mostly dry conditions

through this weekend aid corn harvest/wheat seeding. Showers return early next week and slow

corn harvest, but damage threats are low as a drier 11 to 15 day pattern returns. Brazil rain delays

(.25 to 1”) were confined to far southern corn areas. Showers early next week and in the 11 to

15 favor Rio Grande do Sul, aiding wheat growth. Corn/sugar harvest is favorable in the rest of July
