OMAHA (DTN) -- Improving Midwest harvest conditions and minimal rainfall for Brazil are the primary weather items for the commodity trade's attention Tuesday.

DRY FIVE-DAY STRETCH FOR MIDWEST

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for a drier trend in the Midwest to continue during the balance of this week. This should help improve conditions for the delayed harvest. Warmer weather favors drying of crops as well. Rainfall may increase somewhat during the weekend but probably only in a few areas. The longer range outlook is more uncertain as some increase in rainfall is possible during the six-to-10-day period.
