US Weekend Weather

Much of the US saw beneficial rains over the long holiday weekend with 48-hour precipitation totaling one to three-inches hitting Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, the Delta and parts of the southern Plains, according to Allen Motew of QT Weather.

More rain is on the way this week and stressing heat will be slow to develop. When the heat does arrive, it will not last long, he adds.

Thursday/Friday will see some heat developing, with highs in the mid to upper nineties, but rain quickly returns Saturday, and the temperature drops, he says.

Sounds like they've had a favourable weekend and a decent week is in store for developing crops, no surprise then that eCBOT is sharply lower this morning.
