OMAHA (DTN) -- As harvest nears, elevator operators in the Northern Plains still waiting on railroad cars ordered months ago are experiencing feelings of dread, especially smaller operators or those handling specialty crops.
Light to moderate rain is in store for the Delta and the southwestern U.S. Thursday. Otherwise, we'll see dry conditions in the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions. During the next five days, rain will focus on the Delta and Southeast, with a dry trend elsewhere. Temperatures will be seasonal to below normal in most areas except for southern Texas and the northwestern Plains, where hot temperatures will be noted. Temperature patterns remain favorable to crop development although dryness appears set to move into its second consecutive month over most of the central U.S. » More DTN Weather Commentary
