Light rain showers dotted western Missouri and southern Ohio Wednesday afternoon. The rest of the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions were dry. Temperatures ranged from the teens in the southern Prairies to the mid 70s in eastern New Mexico.

Thursday will be dry in all areas. Temperatures will show a warming trend, notably in the western and Southern Plains through the Delta, Deep South and Southeast. Conditions will continue to be on the cool side over most of the Midwest, Northern Plains and Prairies; a trend that raises the prospect of some notable delays in spring field work.
