Moderate to locally heavy rain will moved through the western Midwest Thursday, causing further delays in corn planting. Eastern Canadian Prairie areas will see light rain and some snow. Dry conditions will cover the rest of the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions and allow for good field-work progress. In the Southern Plains, a dry and windy combination will be stressful for crops and pastures.

Highs: 40s/50s Prairies, northeastern Plains, northern Midwest; 60s/70s northwestern through Southern Plains, Texas Panhandle, remainder of the Midwest; 80s western, central, northern and eastern Texas, Delta, Deep South, Southeast; 90s southern Texas.
