outlook is for poor rainfall and warmer than usual conditions during the next ten days and perhaps longer
Midwest crop maturation and harvest conditions will be good through the weekend, but rain and cooling next week in the Great Lakes region southward into Ohio and parts of Indiana may slow that process
will first impact most of the lower and eastern Midwest early next week as the initial cool air arrives
during the middle to latter part of next week will occur with cool temperatures and will maintain a slow advancement in crop maturation and harvest progress especially in the Great Lakes region and eastern lower Midwest
frontal system in the second weekend of the two-week outlook may induce some additional showers in the Great Lakes region and lower eastern Midwest
will occur in the eastern Midwest after Oct. 3

and freezes may occur to help defoliate some soybeans in a part of the Midwest next week and into the following weekend
wheat planting will advance favorably along with some summer crop harvesting
wheat areas need rain
bottom line to the Midwest weather will be slow field work and crop maturation rates next week in the Great Lakes region and lower eastern Midwest where there will be a rising need for dry and warm conditions. The western Corn Belt will experience the best
Delta will receive additional rain from the remnants of Tropical Depression Beta early today maintaining concern over cotton quality and delaying the harvest all crops in the region
weather will occur Friday through Sunday
Monday will be followed by mostly dry conditions the remainder of next week and into the following weekend
summer crop maturation and harvest conditions are likely during the middle and latter part of next week and into the following weekend
southeastern states will experience some periodic showers and thunderstorms into Monday slowing crop maturation and harvest progress at times, but some progress is likely
drying conditions will evolve next week and last through the first week of October with only a few showers expected
Texas cotton, corn, sorghum and peanut conditions are mostly good for crop maturation and early season harvesting and this will last for at least the next ten days
northwestern Plains need a boost in precipitation to induce better winter crop establishment and planting conditions
hard red winter wheat production areas will remain and dry warm over the next ten days reducing soil moisture, but supporting some fieldwork
drying may eventually delay unirrigated wheat germination, emergence and establishment
far western states still need a generalized rain to ease long term dryness, but none is expected for a while
Prairies will experience a favorable weather pattern for fieldwork, despite some showers periodically
rainfall will be greatest and cause the most disruption to fieldwork
will be near to above average
and Quebec, Canada may get rain a little more frequently than desired beginning next week and lasting at least a week and possibly for ten days resulting in some crop maturation and harvest delays
China weather will continue favorable for cotton and other crop maturation and early harvest progress except possibly in the northeast where showers are expected this weekend into next week
precipitation will not be heavy, but enough to slow field work for brief periods of time
changes in cotton fiber quality are expected
during the weekend and next week will bring an increasing risk of frost and freezes to at least northern portions of the region, but cloud cover may keep the temperature up for a while
would be not harm crops at this point in their development
Africa will continue to experience periodic showers and thunderstorms over the next couple of weeks
areas will need to dry out soon to protect fiber quality and promote maturation
coffee, cocoa, rice and sugarcane crops receiving rain will likely benefit from the moisture
central Africa rainfall has been and will continue to be erratic and mostly beneficial over the next ten days
areas of Southeast Asia will experience periodic showers and thunderstorms over the next couple of weeks
season moisture boosting is extremely important since water supply has not been fully restored from last year’s low levels
rainfall will continue periodically benefiting most crops.
rainfall in Indonesia and Malaysia is expected over the next two weeks with some heavy rain possible in random locations
Zealand rainfall will be above average during the next week to ten days and temperatures a little cooler than usual
