Light to moderate rain will develop in the far southwestern Plains, Delta and Southeast. We'll also see a round of light showers in the central Canadian Prairies. The rest of the primary U.S. and Prairies crop regions will be dry. Temperatures will be seasonally warm in most areas, with hotter values in the northwestern Plains and central through southern Texas. This combination will generally favor crop development, although some dry-condition stress will be noted in portions of the central Plains and western Midwest.

Highs: Generally 80s with 90s northwestern Plains and central through southern Texas.
