  • Market
    attention will remain focused on the northern U.S. Plains, upper Midwest and Canada’s Prairies where another round of rain is expected tonight and Friday.
  • However,
    the attention on U.S. Midwest corn and soybean areas will also be rising as the European forecast model predicts minimal precipitation there for the next ten days.
    • The
      American model has more rain in it for the Midwest, but both models are biased for below average precipitation with a bout of heat expected for a few days during mid-week next week.
  • Additional
    rain fell in the Tennessee River Basin overnight expanding the excessive rainfall area of the past two days (see attached map)
    • Rainfall
      in the Delta and Tennessee River Basin will be diminishing for a while which should lead to some improvement in the recent flood conditions
  • Hot
    weather will also occur in the southwestern Plains over the next couple of days accelerating drying in West Texas, but relief is expected during the weekend next week
    • Some
      showers will eventually return to the region
  • No
    changes were noted in South America overnight
    • Argentina
      still needs rain in some western wheat areas
    • Good
      late season harvest weather will continue in Argentina
    • Brazil’s
      rainfall in the south  periodically will be great for wheat, but comes too late for Safrinha corn
  • Australia’s
    weather changed little overnight with scattered showers in various crop areas during the next ten days
    • Greater
      rain would be welcome
  • Spring
    wheat and sunseed production areas of Russia’s southeastern New Lands and neighboring areas of northern Kazakhstan where rainfall will be restricted for much of the coming two weeks. 
  • Favorable
    weather is expected elsewhere in Russia and Ukraine
  • Europe
    weather should be well mixed over the next two weeks, but some areas in the west will become drier than desired for a little while
  • India’s
    monsoon will continue to be an under performer for a while with rainfall in the interior west from Gujarat through interior Maharashtra to Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu less than usual
    • The
      monsoon depression is still expected to bring heavy rain inland from Odisha to Madhya Pradesh this weekend into next week, but the predicted rain amounts continue to come down reducing the risk of widespread serious flooding
  • China
    will experience a good mix of weather over the next two weeks with improving soil moisture in the Yellow River Basin and neighboring areas that have been drying out recently
