Moderate to heavy rain is in store for the northwestern Plains and eastern Canadian Prairies Friday. This rain will be accompanied by strong winds and will cause some harvest disruptions. Dry conditions will cover the rest of the primary U.S. and Prairie crop regions, favoring harvest and wheat planting through the weekend. Rain moves into the western Midwest on Monday.

Highs: 50s/60s Prairies, Northern and western Plains; 70s/80s elsewhere with 90s in southern Texas.
