Light rain showers will develop in the Delta, Ohio Valley and far southeastern Plains along with the northwestern Plains Thursday. Otherwise, dry conditions will cover the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions. Temperatures will be warm in most areas, and hot in the far southwestern Plains. This combination will generally favor corn and soybean planting along with spring wheat planting in the northern areas. However, dry and very warm to hot conditions will further stress wheat and pastures in the southwestern Plains.

Highs: 70s/80s except 90s and 100s Texas Panhandle through west and southwest Texas.
