Northern Plains Forecast 
    Dry conditions or just a little light snow Thursday-Saturday. Dry weather 
Sunday-Wednesday. Temperatures much below normal. 
6-10 Day Outlook: Temperatures below. Precipitation below normal. 
    Cold weather in the southern plains puts the wheat crop into dormancy. 
Subzero temperatures early next week bear watching for any potential 
winterkill. Dry weather is expected to continue. 
    Recent rainfall and some snow will help recharge soil moisture through key 
winter wheat areas of Turkey. 
    Mostly favorable conditions, at this time for winter wheat in Ukraine and 
south Russia. Fall rainfall has helped recharge soil moisture in key growing 
areas, after late summer dryness and heat. Wheat is likely dormant in most 
areas at this time. 
    Mainly favorable conditions for winter wheat through western Europe at this 
time. Wet conditions through parts of eastern Europe are of some concern for 
winter wheat. Dryness and drought had been of concern in Spain and in Italy. 
Italy has had heavy rains during the fall which should end any further concerns 
over dryness issues. Spain has also seen an increase in rain activities during 
the past few week weeks. However Spain is need of more rain and better 
   Showers during the past week may have briefly delayed the wheat harvest in 
Australia but conditions improved again after that. 
   Colder temperatures through the North China Plain will ease winter wheat 
into dormancy. 
   A recent increase in rainfall through the drought areas of Morocco and 
western Algeria will help to ease stress to winter grains. However, more rain 
is needed to end drought like conditions. A continued more favorable weather 
pattern for winter grains to the east, although colder weather will slow 
   Recent showers in Pakistan and northwest India will favor development of 
recently planted winter wheat in the area. These crop areas reply mostly on 
irrigation and supplemental moisture during the January and February time from 
as cold fronts enter from the north. The region has turned drier and warmer 
again during the past week.
