Dry conditions covered the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions Monday afternoon. Temperatures ranged from the low 50s in northern Michigan and western South Dakota to the mid-80s in central and south Texas.

Tuesday will be mainly dry, warm and breezy. This combination will allow for improving harvest and winter wheat planting conditions. Areas of the southeast Midwest with heavy rain last weekend will continue to be delayed in progress, however. Meanwhile, the milder pattern will offer some benefit for clean-up following tornado damage in the western Midwest, and record-breaking snows in the northwestern Plains last weekend.
