Data: USDA/NASS

Weather ahead: A mixed bag

The six to 10 day forecast points to slightly better than average probability of above average precipitation through the Midwest, while the Eastern Corn Belt has normal chances. This should allow producers in the states that are lagging their normal soybean planting progress to forge ahead.

At the same time, most of the country east of the Rocky Mountains faces well above probabilities of hotter than normal temperatures.
