(Commodity Update)

A cluster of rains is moving across the northern half of Illinois this morning but is expected to dissipate as it moves into northern Indiana. A wider band of rains is moving across the Mid-South this morning. A high-pressure ridge will bring hot and dry conditions to the Plains and Midwest this week before retreating over the Rocky Mountains after the weekend. World Weather Inc. believes the Plains and western fringes of the Corn Belt will experience a drier biased scenario during the next two weeks, but the central and eastern Midwest will get timely rain to maintain a favorable outlook for crop development.
