Commodity Weather Group Forecast


In North America, scattered showers favored parts of northeast/far southeast ND, east-central SD, northern/southwest MN, southern IL, western KY, west-central TN, central SC, southern NC, central Alberta, central Saskatchewan, and southern/ west-central Manitoba in the past day. Highs were in the mid 80s to low 90s in the Midwest, with hotter readings limited to KS and the Delta. Scattered showers in the balance of this week occur in the central/southwest Midwest, with additional weekend

showers in the far southwest. Rains expand in the 6 to 10 day in much of the central/western Midwest, with additional showers in the south/far west in the 11 to 15 day. Dry spots remain limited this month to approximately 15% of the Midwest, with parts of MI/IN/OH still at most risk to be short-changed. will rise into the upper 80s/low 90s in much of the Midwest today, with similar readings next Wednesday to Friday (perhaps mid 90s into the southwest). However, the lack of more severe

heat will still limit any concerns, given the favorable moisture supplies. Showers scatter into the Delta frequently enough in the next two weeks to limit late soy/cotton concerns there as well, with frequent rains aiding Southeast crop growth. The 16 to 30 day shifted slightly wetter in the OH Valley, with extensive near to above normal temperatures but hottest in the South. Frequent showers will continue to raise quality concerns for Canadian wheat/canola, but yield potential remains high.


In Europe/FSU, rains (.25 to 1.25”) tapered off in central Ukraine corn yesterday, while hampering

wheat harvest in northern Germany. Ukraine turns drier in the next 10 days, stressing 1/3 of corn that

is still notably short of moisture. Yield declines are limited due to a lack of heat. In Europe, rains focus on Germany/Poland and lead to ongoing wheat harvest delays and potential damage. However, rains are limited enough in France/U.K. to allow harvest to progress more favorably.
