Dry conditions are in store for all primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions Friday. Temperatures will show slight moderation, but conditions will remain very cold for the season in most areas. This trend will keep disrupting transportation and will be stressful to livestock. In the Far West, some light rain and snow will occur, but drought relief will be limited.

Highs: Single digits Prairies, far Northern Plains; teens/20s northern through south-central Plains; 30s/40s all but western Texas, Southern Plains, Delta, Deep South; 50s western Texas, Southeast.
