Light to moderate rain will cover the southeastern U.S., and a swath of light showers will form in the northwestern Midwest Wednesday. The rest of the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions will be dry. Conditions will again be very warm to hot, notably from the north-central Plains south. The next few days will feature broader coverage of Midwest showers. However, precipitation will be mostly light and of limited benefit for corn and soybeans.

Highs: 70s Prairies; 80s Northern Plains, northern, central, eastern and southern Midwest, Delta, Deep South, Southeast; 90s remainder of the Plains, western Midwest, Texas.
