Between Tuesday and Friday, almost no measurable moisture is expected to fall on the central United States outside of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. However, warmer-than-normal temperatures are expected next week, with numerous chances for showers and thunderstorms. 

General: Grain prices were mixed but mostly lower today as harvest progress in the Northern Hemisphere continues to dispel concerns about global stock shortages.
