Light to moderate rain will cover the south-central Plains and portions of the southwestern Midwest Monday, offering some crop moisture benefit after a dry stretch during much of July. Recent heavy rain in Kansas is producing some flood issues as well. We'll see dry conditions over the remainder of the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions. Temperatures will remain on the cool side in the Midwest, with seasonal readings in the western and south-central Plains through the Southeast, and very warm to hot conditions in the Southern Plains. This combination continues to favor crop conditions overall.
