The southwestern U.S. and wheat-rich southern Plains are facing extreme drought right now, hampering development ahead of the crop heading into dormancy. There may be relief soon, with the convergence of a trough and ridge in the Pacific Ocean potentially pushing a moisture-bearing system into the region in the coming days.
