WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS/IMPACTS...

CHINA/SOUTHEASTERN ASIA  - Some rain fall in central and northern Thailand past 24 hours, but only limited coverage of amounts over 0.50". Rainfall next 5 days 0.25-1.00" in west, 0.10-0.50" in east with spotty heavier. 6-10 day rainfall near to below normal. In China recent rain in Manchuria favorable for adding soil moisture, but has slowed remaining spring crop planting. Drier trend returning allows more planting to be completed. Pattern of mostly light rain favorable for fieldwork, planting and for maturing winter crops in North China Plain and Yangtze Valley, but need for rain for spring crops increasing in many areas and temps well above normal. Wetter in these areas for 6-10 day. Recent rain and more in the forecast keep up soil moisture for crops in southern China, but some rain excessive and slows fieldwork.

BRAZIL/PARAGUAY - Most Safrinha corn areas had some rain recently, and some additional rain in southern areas near term, benefiting some areas where crops are not yet nearing maturity. More of this crop reaching maturity in near future with harvest increasing. Rain slows harvest and fieldwork in Paraguay and southern growing areas of Brazil near term, less rain farther north better for progress in fieldwork and harvest.

AUSTRALIA - Most wheat areas have had at least some light rain recently, adding some soil moisture, but not all areas had significant amounts. Weather pattern favorable for additional planting and fieldwork, but need for rain increases. Some better chances for 6-10 day. --- EUROPE - Northwestern Europe continues to be area most in need of rain and increasing chances into 6-10 day beneficial. Rain elsewhere adds or maintains soil moisture. Rain slows fieldwork at times in a larger part of this region into next week. --- FORMER SOVIET UNION - Rain in western, central and far eastern spring wheat areas and in winter crop areas and southwestern summer crop areas adds or maintains soil moisture, but slows planting and fieldwork. Return of warmer temps beneficial in western and northern growing areas, while some cooling farther southeast beneficial. Less rain overall in some south-central and southeastern growing areas, especially northern 1/2 of Kazakhstan and bordering areas, allows planting and fieldwork to occur, but increases need for rain. --- CANADIAN PRAIRIES - Increasing rain into early next week slows fieldwork and planting here, but does add some soil moisture for areas needing rain. Drier for 6-10 day. --- INDIA - Rainfall in west-central, southwestern, central, north-central and northeastern areas beneficial for adding soil moisture, but some flooding rains fall in some west-central and southwestern areas. Seasonal monsoon has begun so far in some southern and eastern part of India, but will expand over more areas next week to 10 days.


CHINA

    High temperatures yest. upper 60s to low 80s in Manchuria, upper 80s to low 100s North China Plain and mostly 80s/90s south. During the past 24 hours any significant rain was spotty in Manchuria, North China Plain, Yangtze Valley and northwestern parts of southern growing areas. Farther south and southeast some 0.50-2.00" rainfall along with some lighter and some heavier.

    1-5 and 6-10 day temps near to above normal most areas, some cooler in Manchuria for 6-10 day. In most of Manchuria, North China Plain and much of Yangtze Valley rainfall scattered and light for 1-5 day with 0.05-0.50" amounts forecast. Additional 0.75-3.00" rainfall farther south with some scattered heavier amounts. 6-10 day rainfall near to above normal northern and western parts of southern, most of Yangtze Valley and southern North China Plain. Near to below normal elsewhere. 11-15 day rainfall similar. Recent rain in Manchuria favorable for adding soil moisture, but had slowed remaining spring crop planting. Drier trend returning allows more planting to be completed. Pattern of mostly light rain favorable for fieldwork, planting and for maturing winter crops in North China Plain and Yangtze Valley, but need for rain for spring crops increasing in many areas and temps well above normal. Wetter in these areas for 6-10 day. Recent rain and more in the forecast keep up soil moisture for crops in southern China, but some rain excessive and slows fieldwork.


BRAZIL/PARAGUAY

    During the past 24 hours most northern and some central growing areas were dry, with some 0.25-1.00" raifnall from sections of southern Mato Grosso do Sul and Parana southward. Increasing rain during 1-5 day in growing areas of Paraguay and in southern Brazil as far north as southern 1/2 of Mato Grosso and southern Sao Paulo. 0.50-2.00" amounts forecast. In the rest of Brazil rainfall lighter and more spotty, best chances for showers far north and far east. 6-10 day rainfall near to below normal most areas, some above normal far north and far south. Most Safrinha corn areas had some rain recently, and some additional rain in southern areas in near term, benefiting some areas where crops are not yet nearing maturity. More of this crop reaching maturity in near future with haves increasing. Rain slows harvest and fieldwork in Paraguay and southern growing areas of Brazil near term, less rain farther north better for progress in fieldwork and harvest.

INDIA

    During the past 24 hours some 0.50-2.00" rainfall occurred in some west-central, southwestern, north-central, and northeastern parts of India, along with some lighter and a few heavier amounts. Elsewhere rain lighter and more spotty. Greatest rainfall near term falls near both the east and west coasts of India, as well as some west-central, northwestern and northeastern locations. A general increase of rain in more areas for 6-10 day. Rainfall in west-central, southwestern, central, north-central and northeastern areas beneficial for adding soil moisture. Seasonal monsoon has begun so far only in some southern and eastern part of India, but will expand over more of eastern areas next week to 10 days.


EUROPE

    High temperatures yest. 60s/70s large part of this area, some 50s from northwestern into central areas and some 80s far south. During the past 24 hours some 0.10-0.75" rainfall reported from sections of France into some central areas. Rain elsewhere more spotty. 1-5 day temps near to below normal west and central, near to below normal east. 6-10 day temps near to below normal south, near to above normal central and north. Rain chances increase in most areas into early next week. Most rainfall 0.40- 1.25" with some lighter and some heavier. 6-10 day rainfall near to below normal in some north-central and northeastern areas, near to above normal elsewhere. Northwestern Europe continues to be area most in need of rain and increasing chances into 6-10 day beneficial. Rain elsewhere adds or maintains soil moisture. Rain slows fieldwork at times in a larger part of this region into next week.


FORMER SOVIET UNION

    High temperatures yest. 60s/70s in most areas, some 80s/90s in far south-central and southeastern areas. During the past 24 hours some rainfall of 0.05-0.50" in parts of western spring wheat areas and in the winter crop and southwestern spring crop areas, also in some eastern spring wheat areas. Isolated heavier amounts. Drier between these two areas. 1-5 day temps near to below normal southeastern areas, near to above normal elsewhere. 6-10 day temps near to above normal most areas. Some 0.40-1.25" rainfall forecast in western and central spring wheat areas for 1- 5 day, and in some far eastern spring wheat areas and northern winter crop areas. Any rain elsewhere light. 6-10 day rainfall near to below normal most areas, some above normal far west, far north and far east. Rain in western, central and far eastern spring wheat areas and in winter crop areas and southwestern summer crop areas adds or maintains soil moisture, but slows planting and fieldwork. Return of warmer temps beneficial in western and northern growing areas, while some cooling farther southeast beneficial. Less rain overall in some south-central and southeastern growing areas, especially northern 1/2 of Kazakhstan and bordering areas, allows planting and fieldwork to occur, but increases need for rain.


CANADA

    High temperatures yest. upper 50s to low 70s west, upper 60s to low 80s east.
