  • More Moisture Ahead Of The Growing Season 0 comments
    Apr 21, 2013 7:16 PM | about stocks: JJG, CORN, SOYB

    A series of storm systems will bring more rain to the central Plains, and the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys this week, providing ample moisture ahead of the growing season. Portions of eastern Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri will pick up 2 to 2.5 inches of rain. (click to enlarge)

    Moisture will be sparse across eastern Montana and North Dakota.

    Rainfall will also be sparse across Alabama, southern Georgia, as well as parts of northern Louisiana.

    The first part of next week will be dry enough to allow active field work, but by Thursday showers and thundershowers will be across Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri. Illinois and Indiana.

    Flooding will continue along the Mississippi River -- and expand -- as rainwater and snow runoff continue to flow into the river drainage.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
