13 Apr 2018 5:05 am
West and South Russia (Central Region, Black Soils region, Volga valley, 
Southern Russia=Rostov Oblast, Krasnodar Krai, Stravropol Krai, Northern 
Highlights: Mostly dry during the past 24 hours. Temperatures averaged below 
normal in the north, above normal central and south, yesterday. 
 Days 1-3: Mostly dry during this period. Temperatures turn cooler during this 
 Days 4-5: Mostly dry. Temperatures average near to below normal Sunday, near 
to above normal Monday. 
Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus 
Highlights: Mostly dry or with only a few light showers in northwest areas 
during the past 24 hours. Temperatures averaged above to well above normal. 
Highs yesterday in the low 70s to near 80 F, except in Belarus where it was 
somewhat cooler. 
 Days 1-3: Dry or with only isolated light showers today. Scattered sprinkles 
or light showers favoring west and north-central areas tomorrow or during 
Saturday. Temperatures turn somewhat cooler in north and east areas today or 
during Friday, continued warm in the west during this time. The west turns 
cooler while the east becomes warmer during Saturday. 
 Days 4-5: Chance for sprinkles or light showers through central and southeast 
Ukraine during this period. Temperatures average above normal during this 
    Dry weather continues to stress winter wheat in much of the southern 
plains. Crop conditions are poor in many areas. 
    Recent warm temperatures and rain in Turkey will favor development of wheat 
running ahead of normal due to the well above normal temperatures. Recent 
reports suggest wheat has entered the jointing stage and will benefit from 
showers this week and continued warm temperatures. 
    Wheat areas of Ukraine, west and south Russia have been warmer during the 
past week. Wheat is reported to be breaking dormancy over much of the west and 
south areas. Moisture for this crop should be adequate to surplus at this time. 
    Winter wheat areas of Europe have been warmer again during the past week. 
Recent episodes of rain will provide favorable moisture for crops through most 
areas of Europe. Wheat in Spain ranges from reproductive growth to filling and 
has benefited from above normal winter and early spring rains. 
   An increase in rain activity through east-central China during March and 
early April will help improve soil moisture and irrigation in key winter wheat 
areas. Wheat is likely breaking dormancy to vegetative development due to 
recent warmth. Prospects remain good through southern areas. Northern locations 
could use more rain to supplement irrigation at this time. 
   Winter and early spring rainfall averaged above normal in Morocco, Algeria 
and Tunisia. The added moisture will favor jointing to reproductive winter 
wheat. Wheat in western areas may be in of nearing filling stages. Reports 
suggest that prospects for this crop remain good to excellent. 
   A few showers and cooler temperatures have developed in winter wheat areas 
of India since late last week. Showers at this time of year are neutral at best 
and may be unfavorable for the maturing crop.
