Scattered thunderstorms with moderate to locally heavy rain were noted Thursday afternoon in portions of the northwestern Midwest. Scattered rains were also featured across the Canadian Prairies. Other primary crop areas were dry. Temperatures ranged from the mid-60s in the southern Prairies to 101 in western Nebraska.

Friday will bring additional showers to the northwestern Midwest, northeastern Plains and eastern Prairies. Dry conditions will be in place elsewhere. Temperatures will again be stressfully hot in the central and Southern Plains, while seasonal values keep a mild development pattern in place for Midwest crops.
