    • Remnants
      of Tropical Depression Beta will move from eastern Texas through the heart of the Delta into Friday where rainfall will range from 1.50 to 4.00 inches and locally more
    • A
      small disturbance will also move across the Great Lakes region today and Thursday
    • Eastern
      Midwest will get some showers this weekend along with the southeastern states
    • Good
      crop maturation, harvest and planting weather will occur in the Great Plains and western and central Corn Belt over the coming week
      • Most
        of the Plains and western Corn Belt will continue dry into the second week of the outlook
    • Showery
      and cool weather will occur next week in the Great Lakes region and far eastern Midwest

the eastern U.S. and brings on unsettled conditions in the Great Lakes region and eastern Midwest. Most of the Great Plains and western U.S. will stay quite dry and warm.

concerns over dryness in Brazil delaying the onset of early season soybean planting have already begun and rightly so.  Seasonal rains will come at the end of October and early November and then become significant, but for the next few weeks pre-monsoonal
showers and thunderstorms will be more restricted than usual limiting early soybean and corn planting while southern Brazil and parts of Argentina trend briefly wetter.
