Showers and thunderstorms were noted in the Great Lakes and eastern Midwest Tuesday afternoon, and thundershowers dotted the Southeast. Generally dry conditions were featured elsewhere in the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions. Temperatures ranged from the low 60s in the southern Prairies to 100-plus in central and southwestern Kansas through northwestern Oklahoma.

Showers with light rain will extend from central Kansas east through the eastern Midwest Wednesday. This combination will favor row-crop development in most areas due to milder temperatures; however, crops in the Southern Plains will be stressed due to hot and dry conditions.
