Light rain was noted in northwestern Oklahoma, southeastern Texas, and the Delta Wednesday afternoon. The rest of the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions were dry. Temperatures ranged from the low 40s in the southwestern Prairies to the low 90s in far south Texas.

Thursday will feature light rain in the eastern Midwest, Delta, Southeast, and in the north-central Plains. Other areas will be dry. Harvest delays will occur in areas with the showers. Meanwhile, field work will resume in other locales which had lighter precipitation this week.
