Dry conditions are in store for the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions Friday. Temperatures will be warm in the Midwest and hot across the Plains. This combination will favor harvest in the southern Midwest and Prairies, but will further deplete soil moisture and stress finishing crops in the western Midwest and Plains.

Highs: 70s eastern Midwest, northern Prairies; 80s southern Prairies, remainder of the Midwest, Southeast; 90s Plains, Delta, Deep South; 100s southwestern Nebraska.
