Light to moderate rain is in store for portions of the Southern Plains, the Delta and Southeast Wednesday. The rest of the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions will be dry. Temperatures will be seasonally mild in northern and central areas and hotter in southern areas. This combination will generally favor corn pollination, soybean blooming and winter wheat harvest along with allowing some recovery in locations which experienced recent heavy rain and flooding.
Highs: 60s/70s Prairies, northeastern Plains, northern Midwest; 80s northwestern through south-central Plains, remainder of the Midwest; 90s Southern Plains, Texas, Delta, Deep South, Southeast.
