Light rain showers were noted in the Dakotas, eastern Iowa and central Wisconsin Friday afternoon. The rest of the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions were dry. Temperatures ranged from the upper 30s in the northern Great Lakes to the mid 80s in south Texas.
Saturday will generally be dry except for a few scattered showers in the eastern Midwest. This drier trend will allow for harvest progress except in the southern Midwest and Delta, where rainfall this week was the heaviest. A new rain pattern is set to cover the Plains and Midwest during Tuesday of next week.
