Showers were noted in the Deep South and far northwest Plains Monday. Otherwise, dry conditions were in effect across the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions. Temperatures ranged from the upper 40s in central Montana to the upper 80s in south Texas. Values in the low 80s were noted as far north as northern Nebraska.
Tuesday will feature light rain in the Delta and Deep South, with a dry pattern elsewhere. These conditions will mostly favor harvest and wheat planting; however, some late-season delays in cotton management in the Delta are occurring due to the showers in this area.
