Northern Plains Forecast 
    Dry conditions or just some light mixed precipitation Friday. 
Mostly dry weather Friday-Tuesday. Dry conditions or just some light mixed 
precipitation Wednesday. Dry weather Thursday. Temperatures near to below 
normal Friday-Saturday, near to above normal Sunday, variable Monday, near to 
below normal Tuesday, near to above normal Wednesday, above normal Thursday. 
6-10 Day Outlook: Temperatures variable. Precipitation below normal. 
    Mostly favorable conditions, at this time, for slow development of winter 
grains in southern Ukraine and south Russia. Recent rainfall has helped 
recharge soil moisture in key growing areas, after late summer dryness concerns 
and heat. Winter grains are entering dormancy from northern Ukraine northward. 
    Mainly favorable conditions for planting winter grain and development 
through western Europe at this time. Recent rains have slowed planting progress 
in the east while improving soil moisture following drier and hotter late 
summer weather. Dryness and drought has been of concern in Spain and of some 
concern through Italy. Spain had showers early last week but more rain will be 
needed to end the drought.  Italy had heavy rainfall during the week which 
should end any further concerns at this time. 
   Dryness in east-central Australia delayed the early planting effort for 
sorghum. Rainfall during October provided needed soil moisture and irrigation 
through much of the region but especially through the south Queensland areas. 
Improving prospects for planting and early development. 
   Late season rainfall through India will have favored development of the 
Kharif sorghum crop, especially in previously dry areas in and near 
Maharashtra. Late season rainfall also improved irrigation and soil moisture 
supplies in winter sorghum areas. Recent rains in the far south may be somewhat 
unfavorable for the harvest of summer crops and the planting of winter
