Light rain showers will form in the north-central Plains Wednesday. Otherwise, midweek will be dry in the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions.

The rest of this week offers generally no precipitation, which will further exacerbate drought issues. As an example of recent heat, temperatures in Iowa last week averaged 11.7 degrees Fahrenheit above normal.
