Dry conditions covered almost all the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions Thursday. Exceptions were the northern Great Lakes and far western Prairies, where light snow was noted. Temperatures ranged from the low 30s in the southern Prairies and northeastern North Dakota to the upper 70s in southeastern Georgia.

Light snow will move through the eastern Prairies and far Northern Plains Friday. We'll then see a light rain and snow mix for the northern Midwest Friday and Saturday, with dry conditions in effect elsewhere. This pattern suggests more favorable harvest conditions in most areas going into the weekend.
