Midwest is wetter in northwestern areas in the 6-10 day period. Active rains across the region over the next few days will continue to build moisture which will favor wheat establishment this fall.
However, the rains will be too late to significantly improve conditions for corn and soybeans. The 6-10 day period is wetter in northwestern areas. Temperatures are unchanged. The 11-15 day period is drier in northeastern areas. Temperatures are slightly cooler in central areas.
-Plains are wetter Sunday. Rains in southern and eastern areas over the next few days will further improve moisture which will benefit winter wheat germination. Drier weather in western areas will allow wetness there to ease a bit. The 6-10 day outlook is wetter in north central areas. Temperatures are unchanged. The 11-15 day outlook is slightly wetter in far northeastern areas. Temperatures are warmer in southwestern areas.
-Northern Plains/Prairies are wetter in the northeastern Plains in the 6-10 day period. Showers in the northern Plains and southern Prairies are slowing spring wheat harvesting a bit. Harvesting should improve again this weekend, though. The 6-10 day outlook is wetter in the northeastern Plains. Temperatures are unchanged. The 11-15 day outlook is unchanged.
-Delta is wetter Sunday. Active rains Friday through Sunday will slow corn drydown and early harvesting. The 6-10 day outlook is slightly wetter in southern areas. Temperatures are unchanged. The 11-15 day outlook is slightly cooler in southern areas.
-No changes for Argentina. A few showers will be possible across eastern Cordoba and Santa Fe on Sunday, but amounts should be rather light. Dryness will remain extensive in western wheat areas. The 6-10 day is unchanged today.
-Brazil is drier in east central areas in the 6-10 day period. Scattered showers in north central areas will improve moisture a bit, although more rains will be needed to end dryness there. Meanwhile, heavy rains across southern Parana, Santa Catarina, and northern Rio Grande do Sul will increase wetness concerns there. The 6-10 day outlook is drier in east central areas.
-No changes for Europe. Rains are maintaining some wetness in southern Germany. However, rains have improved moisture across southeastern Poland, Slovak Republic, western Romania, and northern Former Yugoslavia. This will favor winter wheat germination. Drier weather in most areas through early next week will now allow wetness to ease and corn and sunflower harvesting to improve.
-No changes for FSU. Rains are maintaining wetness across northern and west central Ukraine and Central Region. The rains will also continue to slow corn and sunflower harvesting.
-No changes for China. Showers should return to southeastern North China Plain and eastern Yangtze Valley, which will slow corn and soybean drydown and early harvesting. However, no significant problems are expected.
-No changes for Australia. Dryness will continue across Queensland and western South Australia. Recent rains significantly improved moisture for wheat across much of New South Wales, but drier weather there now through next week will allow moisture to decline again.
-No changes for India. Rains will further improve moisture across central areas which will favor late growth of soybeans.
