WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS/IMPACTS...

CHINA - Areas where greater need for rain continues in near future would include some central and eastern parts of southern growing areas, with no major amounts forecast and some hot temps continuing. Recent rainfall elsewhere in southern growing areas and in North China Plain has added to or kept up soil moisture. No major delays in any fieldwork being done in most of North China Plain and southern growing areas in near term with most rain lighter. Recent rain and more in forecast keep up or add to soil moisture in Manchuria, but also slows fieldwork including some spring wheat harvest. Some dry time needed in eastern Manchuria after recent heavier rains.

BRAZIL - No major delays in any fieldwork being done in most areas.

FORMER SOVIET UNION - In spring wheat areas some rain falls in most areas, but only light amounts in south-central areas. Rain benefits some crops, but some also may be near time when additional rain not of much benefit. Rain slows fieldwork, including some spring wheat harvest. In some southern and eastern parts of spring wheat areas lack of major rainfall at times has caused worsening crop conditions over the past month or so. In southern growing areas rain benefits summer crops in western and central areas, and slows fieldwork. Some dry time in far west. Drier in east with better fieldwork conditions, and need for rain remains greater in some far southern parts of Volga region, eastern Southern Region and western kazakhstan. No major delays in fieldwork in east.

EUROPE - Recent rain and more rain in near future beneficial for summer crops in northern and central Europe. Rain slows some fieldwork. Greater need for rain continues much of Spain and a few far south-central areas, but most amounts look light. Some rain beneficial in southeastern Europe also this week, with a drier near term trend. --- CANADA - Recent rain in this area, and some additional in west and north adds or keeps up soil moisture. Some crops may be nearing time where rain not of much additional benefit. Fieldwork slowed at times by rain, especially in west and north, better fieldwork conditions elsewhere. --- AUSTRALIA - Rain this week keeps growing conditions favorable in much of western wheat areas, but northern part of this area could use some greater amounts. Growing conditions remain favorable in southern part of eastern wheat areas and some additional rain forecast in near term. . Some rain last weekend beneficial farther north in New South Wales, but in general need for rain more critical in central into northern New South Wales and southeastern Queensland, and no major additional amounts seen in near future to prevent worsening crop conditions and yield reductions. --- INDIA - Recent rain and additional rain in near term keeps or adds soil moisture in most of Indian, but some excessive amounts at times continue to cause some flooding. Increasing amounts in some central into southeastern areas and in northwest beneficial into next week. Seasonal rainfall since June 1 is 2% above normal for India as a whole. 4% above normal in south, 16% above normal central, 7% below normal northwest and 15% below normal in east/northeast.


CHINA

    High temperatures yest. mostly 80s/90s, some 70s far west and far north, some around 100 in Some 0.25-1.00" rainfall past 24 hours in northeastern North China Plain and Manchuria, along with some lighter and a few heavier amounts.

    Highs in 80s/90s continue most areas, some cooler in Manchuria and some around 100 in southern 1/2 of China. Some additional rain in Manchuria next 24 to 48 hours, then briefly drier before showers return early next week. 5 day rainfall 0.50-1.50". In most of North China Plain and southern growing areas rainfall scattered and lighter, some 0.50-2.00" amounts in far southern China. 6-10 day rainfall near to below normal most areas, some above in northwestern North China Plain and northern Manchuria. 11-15 day rainfall near to above normal Yangtze Valley and Manchuria, near to below normal elsewhere. Areas where greater need for rain continues in near future would include some central and eastern parts of southern growing areas, with no major amounts forecast and some hot temps continuing. Recent rainfall elsewhere in southern growing areas and in North China Plain has added to or kept up soil moisture. No major delays in any fieldwork being done in most of North China Plain and southern growing areas in near term with rainfall lighter. Recent rain and more in forecast keep up or add to soil moisture in Manchuria, but also slows fieldwork including some spring wheat harvest. Some dry time needed in eastern Manchuria after recent heavier rains.


BRAZIL

    Little or no rain most growing areas past 24 hours. Dry trend many areas into 6-10 day, with some showers far south and far east at times. No major delays in fieldwork being done in most areas.

INDIA

    During past 24 hours greatest rainfall occurred in sections of southwestern, west-central, northwestern, north-central and far northeastern parts of India. Elsewhere coverage amounts of rain less in most areas. More rain forecast in nearly all of India into next week, with some excessive, flooding amounts continuing at times. Increasing amounts in northwest and central into southeastern areas where recent rain was lighter. 6-10 day rainfall lighter in northwestern areas, with more significant amounts elsewhere. Recent rain and additional rain in near term keeps up or adds soil moisture in most of India, but some excessive amounts at times continue to cause some flooding. Increasing amounts in some central into southeastern areas and in northwest beneficial into next week. Seasonal rainfall since June 1 is 2% above normal for India as a whole. 4% above normal in south, 16% above normal central, 7% below normal northwest and 15% below normal in east/northeast.


EUROPE

Changeable temps every few days. 6-10 day rainfall near to below normal. Recent rain in this area, and some additional in west and north adds or keeps up soil moisture. Some crops may be nearing time where rain not of much additional benefit. Fieldwork slowed at times by rain, especially in west and north, better fieldwork conditions elsewhere.


AUSTRALIA

    During the past 24 hours most wheat areas had only spotty, light showers. Some additional 0.05-0.50" rainfall in western wheat areas next few days, greatest in west and south.
