Dry conditions will sprawl across all major U.S. and Prairie crop regions Wednesday. This trend continues to offer minimal precipitation for driest areas of the Western Corn Belt and Plains. The western Midwest and northern-central Plains areas have the most extensive drought at this time of year since the Drought Monitor began production in 2000. Portions of the Southern Plains are equal to the exhausting drought of 2011.

Highs: Teens/20s Canadian Prairies; 30s/40s northern and central Plains, Midwest; 50s/60s Southern Plains, all but south Texas, Delta, Deep South, Southeast; 70s south Texas.
