OMAHA (DTN) -- Freezing low temperatures in the Midwest, and minimal precipitation over the southwestern Plains wheat areas, are the primary weather items for the commodity trade's attention Friday.
COLD LATE WEEK IN MIDWEST
The DTN ag weather forecast calls for cold weather Friday and Saturday mornings to burn back vegetative growth of corn in some locations. Drier weather will favor planting of corn and soybeans, except that rains may re-develop in the north later this weekend and early next week. Low temperatures in the low 20s to low 30s Fahrenheit Friday morning broke many records in the western Midwest.
