Dry conditions dominated the major U.S. and Prairie crop regions Wednesday afternoon. Temperatures ranged from the mid-20s in the southern Manitoba and the northern Great Lakes to the upper 70s in south Texas and south Georgia.

Thursday will feature some colder temperatures in the northern areas, but with only a slight amount of moisture in the form of light rain in northern Colorado and in northern Wisconsin. This pattern remains very dry over the western Midwest and Plains, with slightly better moisture chances in the eastern Midwest.
