Light rain is in store for the Ohio River valley Friday. Otherwise, dry conditions will prevail across the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions. Conditions will be warm in northern and eastern areas, and very warm to hot in the central and southern locales. The next five days will be generally dry and very warm to hot.
