Another mainly dry and hot day is in store for the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions Thursday. Showers and thunderstorms will be confined to eastern North Dakota and northern Minnesota. This combination brings more stressful and yield-threatening conditions to corn and soybean areas, along with stress to livestock.

Highs: 80s Prairies, Great Lakes, eastern Midwest; 90s elsewhere with some 100s southern Oklahoma through central Texas.
