Forecast maps show little relief from drought

The extended forecast into early next week from the U.S. Weather Service holds little hope for significant rain in the dry areas of the Canadian Prairies.
Rain in significant amounts is forecast however for Manitoba on the weekend.
The U.S. southern Midwest if forecast to continue to get significant rain most days into the early part of next week, raising the potential for more ponding and disease in corn and soybeans and delaying the soft winter wheat harvest.
Excess moisture in the Midwest has already caused downgrading in the USDA’s weekly crop condition reports.
