14 Sep 2017 5:05 am
Northern plains highlights... 
 Mostly dry during the past 24 hours. Temperatures averaged well above normal. 
Northern Plains Forecast 
   Mostly dry or with only a few light showers favoring western and southern 
areas today. Moderate to heavy showers and thunderstorms develop in the west 
and spread east tomorrow and during Friday. Temperatures average above normal 
today, below normal west and above normal east Thursday, below normal Friday. 
   Chance for light showers favoring central and eastern areas Saturday. Drier 
Sunday. Dry or with only light showers developing in western areas Monday. 
Temperatures average below normal Saturday and Sunday, near to below normal 
6-10 Day Outlook: Temperatures are expected to average mostly below normal 
west, somewhat more variable east. Rainfall near to below normal west, near to 
above normal east. 
    Soil moisture through key winter wheat areas of the central plains 
continues to diminish. Favorable conditions for planting but rain will be 
needed to ensure favorable development prior to winter dormancy. 
    Major losses to spring wheat due to hot/dry weather in July in the 
Prairies. Mostly favorable weather for the harvest. 
    The spring wheat harvest is nearing completion in the northern Plains. 
    Favorable conditions for developing wheat in central Argentina. 
    Favorable moisture conditions for late filling spring wheat in northern 
Kazakhstan and central Russia. Recent hot, dry weather favored the maturing 
crop. Cooler weather at this time may be somewhat unfavorable for maturing 
    Mostly favorable soil moisture for vegetative to reproductive wheat in West 
and vegetative wheat in southeast Australia at this time. However, more rain 
would still benefit these crop areas after very dry weather earlier in the 
season. Dryness continues to stress wheat grown in northern NSW and southern 
Queensland. Wheat in reproductive growth stages is likely being hurt at this 
time. Rain is needed to stabilize crop prospects for the area.
