2 Mar 2018 6:05 am
Northern plains highlights... 
    Dry conditions. Temperatures variable. 
Northern Plains Forecast 
    Dry weather Thursday. Dry conditions or just a little light snow 
Friday-Saturday. Snow over central and eastern areas Sunday. Light to moderate 
amounts with locally heavier expected. Dry conditions or just some lingering 
light snow in the far east Monday. Dry weather Tuesday-Wednesday. Temperatures 
variable Thursday, near to above normal Friday, variable Saturday, near to 
below normal Sunday, below to much below normal Monday-Wednesday. 
6-10 Day Outlook: Temperatures below normal. Precipitation below normal. 
    The overall dry weather pattern is expected to continue in the southern 
plains during the next 10 days. More rain will be needed to support the crop 
when it breaks dormancy. Episodes of cold weather will provide additional 
stress to a crop already experiencing dryness. 
    Recent warm temperatures have melted snow cover through key winter wheat 
areas of Turkey. Moisture supplies should favor any vegetative growth of winter 
wheat at this time. 
    Very cold weather covers wheat areas of Russia and Ukraine at this time. 
Wheat is likely protected from the coldest of this weather by an adequate to 
deep snow cover in most cases. 
    Winter wheat areas of Europe will also see well below normal temperatures 
for a couple more days. However, it does not appear to be cold enough to harm 
dormant winter wheat even in areas without a protective snow cover. Wheat areas 
in Spain and Italy will benefit from above normal winter time precipitation at 
this time, mostly rain in Spain and snow and rain in Italy. 
   Seasonal weather through the North China Plain at this time. No significant 
concerns for the dormant winter wheat crop. 
   Winter time rainfall through in Morocco and western Algeria. The added 
moisture will favor vegetative growth, although prior cold weather has slowed 
development somewhat. 
   Key winter wheat areas of Pakistan and India are dry and very warm at this 
time, increasing stress to this crop.
