Weekly Weather Forecast - September 26

Jump to: navigation, search

Scattered rains will be in the Corn Belt and to the east of Interstate 35 in the U.S.thorugh Wednesday (September 28). And completely dry weather is forecasted in the Plains, Southeast, and the east of the Corn Belt, which will help harvesting. Little or no in the hard-red winter wheat area for the coming ten days is a major forecast concern. To conclude, the weather will be good for corn and soybean harvesting, which would cause the corn and soybean price to go down. But the wheat price may go up due to the dry condition.
