WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS/IMPACTS...

CHINA/SOUTHEASTERN ASIA  - In Thailand past 24 hours rainfall of 0.50-2.00" reported in some northern and far southeastern locations. Lighter elsewhere. 1-5 day rainfall increases in Thailand with 0.75-2.50" amounts forecast. 6-10 day rainfall in Thailand near to below normal. Rain past few days and more in forecast for Manchuria and North China Plain benefits summer crops, and also slows any fieldwork being done including spring wheat heaviest in Manchuria. Some southern parts of Manchuria most in need of rain. It will not be totally dry, but pattern of less rain from Yangtze Valley southward more favorable in areas where recent heavy rain has saturated fields, slowed fieldwork, caused some crop damage and significant flooding. Better overall fieldwork conditions in these areas, but some near term rain does slow progress.

BRAZIL - No major delays in continuing Safrinha corn harvest most areas.

AUSTRALIA - Some recent rain and more into early next week beneficial in western wheat areas. Need for rain greatest in north. Increasing rain into early next week in most eastern wheat areas. Amounts lighter and need for rain continues in western parts of Victoria and southeastern South Australia. --- EUROPE - No delays in fieldwork in much of western Europe in near term, but soils continue to dry and need for rain increases further to prevent worsening crop conditions as hotter temps return. Some rain in west for 6-10 day. Overall growing conditions better in eastern Europe, and a drier trend favorable for fieldwork. --- SOVIET UNION - Areas most likely in need of rain to prevent further worsening of some summer crop conditions include parts of southern Volga Region, northern and central southern Region, western Kazakhstan, eastern Ukraine, southeastern Central Region, and parts of far southern Urals Region. Some rain falls here near term but not all areas get major amounts. Need for rain increases into 6-10 day in more of the western half of this region, while rainfall greater overall in eastern 1/2. Spring wheat harvest slowed in near term in some central areas, then in eastern areas for 6-10 day. --- CANADA - Need for rain likley greatest in southern AB and southwestern SK. Amounts look light in these areas with some worsening crop conditions. Greatest amounts favor northern and eastern growing areas. No major delays in any early spring wheat harvest in near term in most areas. - INDIA - Growing conditions favorable for summer crops in much of India, some excessive rainfall in far northeast far west-central and far southwest causes some flooding. Increasing rain in Gujarat beneficial, but need for greater rainfall continues in some far northwestern parts of India. Need for rain increases in southeast.


CHINA

    High temperatures yest. mostly 80s/90s, some cooler in far north and some around 100 in northern parts of Southern growing areas. During the past 24 hours most rainfall in Manchuria was light, few amounts of 0.10-1.00" in far north and far east. In North China Plain some 0.50-2.00" rainfall in some northern areas, along with some lighter and some heavier amounts. Farther south into Yangtze Valley and northern parts of southern growing areas rainfall scattered and light. Some greater amounts far southern China.

    1-5 and 6-10 day temps mostly near to above normal, some cooler in northern Manchuria. Additional rainfall of 0.10-0.75" forecast into weekend and Mon. in most of Manchuria and 0.75-2.50" in most of north China Plain. 0.50-1.50" amounts in most of Yangtze Valley and the far western southern growing areas. Rain lighter rest of southern growing areas. 6-10 day rainfall near to above normal in most of North China Plain and Manchuria, near to below normal elsewhere. 11-15 day rainfall near to above normal most of Manchuria and northern North China Plain, near to below normal farther south. Recent rain and more in forecast for Manchuria and North China Plain benefits summer crops, and also slows any fieldwork being done, including spring wheat harvest in Manchuria. Some southern parts of Manchuria most in need for rain. It will not be totally dry, but pattern of less rain from Yangtze Valley southward more favorable in areas where recent heavy rain has saturated fields, slowed fieldwork, and caused some crop damage and significant flooding. Better overall fieldwork conditions in these areas, but some near term rain does slow progress.


BRAZIL

    During the past 72 hours most Safrinha corn areas were dry. Most Safrinha corn areas dry this week into weekend. 6-10 day rainfall below normal Safrinha corn areas, some increasing amounts in far south. No major delays in remaining Safrinha corn harvest most areas.

INDIA

    During the past 24 hours rainfall of 0.50-1.50" occurred from parts of western and southern Gujarat southward, and in some central, north-central and east-central parts of India along with some lighter and some heavier. Elsewhere in India rain lighter. Lightest rainfall into weekend and Mon. falls in some far northwestern and in some southeastern parts of India with less than 0.50". Additional rain falls elsewhere with increasing rain chances in Gujarat. Amounts 0.75-3.00" common with some heavier in far west-central and southwestern areas, and in far northeast. 6- 10 day rainfall near to below normal far northwest and in southern areas, near to above normal elsewhere. Growing conditions favorable for summer crops in much of India, some excessive rainfall in far northeast far west-central and far southwest causes some flooding. Increasing rain in Gujarat beneficial, but need for greater rainfall continues in some far northwestern parts of India. Need for rain increases in southeast.


EUROPE

    High temperature yest. 70s/80s large part of this area. Some cooler central, east and far north. Some 90s/low 100s in Spain.

Rainfall light in large part of this region into weekend and Mon., with any additional significant amounts only in far southeast. 6- 10 day rainfall near to below normal most areas, some greater in northwestern and west-central areas. No delays in fieldwork in much of western Europe in near term, but soils continue to dry and need for rain increases further to prevent worsening crop conditions as hotter temps return. Some rain in west for 6-10 day. Overall growing conditions better in eastern Europe, and a drier trend favorable for fieldwork.
