Mostly dry and warm conditions are in store for the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions Thursday. Rain will concentrate in the southeast U.S., with a few isolated showers in the central Plains. This combination will favor corn silking and soybean plant development and blooming. There will be some hot conditions in the Southern Plains, stressful for crop conditions there.

Highs: 80s Prairies, Midwest, Southeast; 90s elsewhere with 100s southwest Plains through central Texas.
