OMAHA (DTN) -- Below-average rainfall in the western Midwest, and a hotter and drier pattern in the Southern Plains, are the primary weather items for the commodity trade's attention Thursday.

VARIABLE MIDWEST RAINFALL

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for showers in the central and eastern Midwest to maintain adequate soil moisture for corn and soybean crops. The westernmost areas will be drier, with crop stress increasing. A brief spell of hot weather is not a concern. Temperatures most of the time will average near to below normal, helping to reduce stress in drier areas.
