Dry conditions will dominate the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions Tuesday. The exceptions will be the far eastern Midwest and the Southeast, where light rain showers will occur. Temperatures will be seasonal to above average, allowing for warming of soils for planting progress. Southwestern Plains areas will have further stress due to a very warm and dry trend.

Highs: 50s eastern Prairies, northern Great Lakes; 60s/70s western Prairies, all but southwestern Plains, Midwest, Delta, Deep South, Southeast; 80s southwestern Plains, Texas.
