A few rain showers are in store for the western Midwest Thursday morning and light rain will be noted in the northwestern Plains Thursday afternoon. Otherwise, dry conditions will cover the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions. This late-summer pattern continues to exhaust crops while hastening maturity stages. Harvest conditions will be favorable in the spring wheat areas along with southern row crop areas.

Highs: 70s Great Lakes; 80s all but southern Prairies, northeastern Plains, remainder of the Midwest; 90s southern Prairies, Plains, Texas, Delta, Deep South, Southeast with 100s central Texas.
