OMAHA (DTN) -- Favorable conditions across the Midwest, and some heavy weekend rain in the Southern Plains, are the primary weather items for the commodity trade's attention Friday.

FAVORABLE MIDWEST PATTERN

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for Midwest rainfall to focus on the western and southern sectors during the next five days. Shower threats early next week do not appear to be heavy. This weather forecast should favor spring fieldwork and planting. Soil moisture and temperatures favor earlier- planted crops and developing winter wheat.

MODERATE TO HEAVY SOUTHERN PLAINS RAIN
