Generally dry conditions are in store for the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions Tuesday. A few showers in the Southeast comprise the only precipitation chance. Temperatures will be mild in the eastern Midwest and warm to hot elsewhere. This week shapes up to be mostly dry, which will cause additional issues for row crops, notably soybeans. Production loss compared with recent estimates is likely after last week's record heat and dryness.

Highs: 70s northern Prairies, eastern Midwest; 80s southern Prairies, eastern Plains, western and southern Midwest, Southeast; 90s elsewhere with some 100s southwestern Texas.
