OMAHA (DTN) -- A hot and dry week ahead in southern Brazil soybean areas and some easing of cold conditions in the Southern Plains are the primary weather items for the commodity trade's attention Friday.
COLD AND DRY MIDWEST TREND
The DTN ag weather forecast calls for minimal winter-kill threat to Midwest soft red winter wheat due to snow cover protection. A second surge of cold is expected early next week. The pattern may moderate somewhat later next week. The storm track is well south and east during this period, likely remaining south and east of the Midwest areas.
