A primarily dry spring weather trend has shifted to a wetter pattern that will deliver much-needed rainfall to parts of the northern Plains and Corn Belt. Through mid-week, a good portion of North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and south through the Plains will stay on the wet side, while a high-pressure system will keep the Southeast dry. It’s a welcome reversal of the most common moisture extremes thus far this spring for row crop farmers in the central and southeastern parts of the country where soil moisture levels are well lower than normal. California will continue to miss out on the moisture for the first few days of this week, while a longer-term outlook shows the northern Plains could see substantial precipitation through the end of the week.
