Drought conditions remain mostly unchanged north, with some abnormally dry areas spreading into western IL and northwestern MN. Drought conditions have receded in NC and SC due to the rainfall they are getting, and should recede more on next weeks report. For the winter wheat growing areas, there is slight worsening of drought areas in western and central TX, with severe drought developing in central TX. There will be scattered showers in western/central parts of OK/NE/KS, in eastern CO, and in northwestern/far north-central TX Friday to Sunday, with some rain reaching eastern NE and eastern KS this weekend. Rain will recede into the TX/OK Panhandles and southwestern KS/eastern CO Monday and mainly affect NE, the TX Panhandle, and CO Tuesday. Thus, much of TX will become drier the next few days.

Joaquin is currently a category 4 major hurricane. The ECMWF-EPS model is pushing Joaquin northeastward into the Atlantic. Previous model runs of the GFS-ENS have been bringing Joaquin toward the Mid-Atlantic coast. However, the current GFS-ENS model run is turning Joaquin north-northeastward and keeping it in the Atlantic. The increased agreement between these two models indicates a greater chance of Joaquin not making landfall, although there is still disagreement with other models.

Looking forward to next week's report 04/11/2014 @ 8:39am These probabilities are new to me. Why does the soybean yield forecast seem less impacted by El Nino? Prices aren't going to like a big production year, though.

Days are getting shorter 06/24/2013 @ 7:50am The heat has been good for the crops this past week and I was hoping it would continue for a while. Your projected cool down and the days getting shorter concerns me. A lot of late planted beans. A frost in the first half of September would be very bad. Nice rain last night west of Des Moines. Wind
