China Winter Wheat Weather - Jan 29

29 Jan 2017 11:10 pm
Central China (North China Plain, Yangtze river valley) 
Highlights: Mostly dry Friday. Scattered light precipitation south and a little 
light precipitation northeast during the weekend. Temperatures averaged above 
normal Friday but it turned somewhat colder during the weekend...especially 
through northern areas. 
 Days 1-3: Episodes of light to moderate showers through the western Yangtze 
river valley during this period. Chance for a little light rain or drizzle 
elsewhere in the southern areas during this time. Mostly dry in the north. 
Temperatures average near to above normal during this period. 
 Days 4-6: Dry or with only a little light rain in southern areas Thursday and 
Friday. Heavier rain may develop near the Yangtze river Saturday. Temperatures 
average near to above normal during this period. 
    Much improved soil moisture in the southern plains for the winter wheat 
crop when it breaks dormancy. This will mitigate the impact of dry weather in 
the west this past fall and some very cold weather earlier in the winter. 
    Beneficial rains for winter wheat in both the Delta and Southeast states 
after drought conditions this fall. 
   Episodes of cold and very cold temperatures is expected to have caused some 
problems for unprotected wheat in parts of eastern Europe during this winter to 
date. The coldest weather in Europe appears to be coming to an end at this 
    Winter wheat areas of Ukraine, west and south Russia have a mostly adequate 
snow cover at this time. This allows for protection as temperatures turn cold 
again at the end of this week. 
   Harvesting continues in southern South Australia and Victoria with some 
delay possible during times of showers. Rain may cause some reduction in 
quality of unharvested crops. 
   Mostly favorable conditions for dormant winter wheat through east-central 
China at this time. Snow is minimal in the region which means this crop would 
be vulnerable in the event of a strong cold snap. 
   Wheat in Pakistan and north India has benefited from recent cooler 
temperatures and scattered light to moderate showers during this week, 
improving conditions for jointing or reproductive wheat. 
   Periodic showers through winter wheat areas of northwest Africa has supplied 
favorable moisture for most of the key growing belt. Prospects have improved in 
the west where it had been too dry earlier and prospects remain good in the
