Light to moderate rain is in store for the Northern Plains and Canadian Prairies Thursday, along with some gusty winds. This combination will produce harvest delays in these areas. Dry, breezy and warm conditions will occur elsewhere. Temperatures will be very warm to hot in the Southern Plains, which will cause some concern over available soil moisture for winter wheat planting. Midwest activities will have no delays.

Highs: 50s/60s western and central Prairies, northwestern Plains; 70s/80s northeastern and central Plains, Midwest, northern Delta, Southeast; 90s Southern Plains, Texas, southern Delta, Deep South.
