MIDWEST U.S. - Any rainfall today was spotty with most areas remaining dry. Highs ranged from the upper 40's in north-central areas to the 60's southwest. The latest European model looks about the same as the past run from last night showing the cold snap the next couple days for the Midwest followed by a warming trend next week and this milder trend will continue into the 6-10 day period with a more westerly flow in the jet stream. Most of the corn crop is mature on last Monday's weekly crop report which is good as there will be sub freezing temps the next couple nights for much of the region from the upcoming coold snap.

MIDWEST 1 to 5 day - Colder air will move into the region for the next couple days then warmer Sunday into early next week to at least seasonable levels. The west will stay dry through the weekend with some light rain in the east tonight into Friday and some light snow in the northeast and far east Friday night into Saturday. The next main system will move across the region Monday and Tuesday with scattered showers. Highs tomorrow will be in the 30's far north to low 50's far south and 30's northeast to low 50's far west on Saturday. Highs Sunday will be mostly 50'sand low 60's with some 40's far northeast. Mainly 50's and low 60's across the region early next week.

MIDWEST 6 to 10 day - Warming to above normal across the region for November 5-9 with below normal rainfall northwest, above normal rain in southwest and south-central areas and near normal elsewhere.

MIDWEST 11 to 15 day - Above normal temps with near normal precipitation west and near to below normal precip east.


PLAINS WEATHER - Rain moved out of the eastern section of the Northern Plains early this morning, otherwise today was dry across the Plains region with highs in the Southern Plains in the 60's and 70's and only from 35 to 45 degrees in the Northern Plains. For the Southern Plains, it looks dry through the weekend then the next system will bring some rain across the area Sunday night into a portion of Tuesday. Highs tomorrow ill cool to the upper 40's and 50's north and 50's to low 60's south. Warmer over the weekend with mostly 60's on Saturday and about 65-75 on Sunday. Cooler early next week to the upper 50's and 60's. For the 6-10 day outlook, mostly above normal temps, near normal far southwest. Rainfall will vary from below normal northwest portions to above normal southeast. The Northern Plains look mainly dry through the weekend then some light rain in the west portion on Monday. Highs tomorrow will be in the 30's east to low 50's far west. Warmer this weekend with highs in the 40's east to low 60's west on Saturday and mostly 50's and low 60's Sunday.

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
