    • Clear
      skies were noted from northwestern and west-central Minnesota  to western Nebraska and eastern Wyoming where additional frost and freezes occurred
      • Extreme
        lows slipped to 26 at Alliance, Nebraska and Pine Ridge, South Dakota with numerous other readings in the upper 20s from eastern Wyoming and western Nebraska to southwestern South Dakota
      • A

    • Damage
      to crops was low, but some additional impact may have occurred in western Nebraska where readings were colder today than earlier this week
  • Center
    west Brazil and some center south crop areas have been advertised to receive a few showers after Sep. 20
    • The
      precipitation looks to be erratic and light, but it will be closely monitored since this would be the first rain for early season soybean areas of Brazil
  • Argentina’s
    weather is still unfavorable for meaningful rain in west-central parts of the nation for at least the next 10 days
  • Western
    Europe still has an opportunity to receive some rain in the second week of the forecast, but the significance of that event is low
  • No
    change in the dry bias was noted overnight for central or eastern Ukraine, Russia’s Southern Region western Kazakhstan or southeastern Europe

    Australia’s crop areas are advertised wetter in the September 18-24 period
  • GFS
    model was advertising greater rain in U.S. hard red winter wheat areas Sep 18-22 on the 00z model run and Sep 20-22 on the 06z model run, the latter of which has a better chance of verifying – confidence in this change is low

      • The
        moisture will be ideal for raising topsoil moisture for better reproductive and pre-reproductive conditions for winter crops in New South Wales and Queensland
        • Some
          of the rain in Queensland may come a little too late to restore production potentials after recent dryness and frost and freezes
    • South
