Over the past week or so, we have the start of a weather market as hot weather has been the rule, and most areas have seen normal to a little below normal precipitation. Dan Hicks of Freese-Notis weather has the statistics.



Hicks says the current hot pattern will hold in place at least through the rest of June and possibly through the entire summer.



Some areas have seen some good rainfall totals, for example Monday night areas around Streator Illinois reported four inches in a single downpour… but for the most part showers have been light and intermittent which is causing some concern in the grain trade.
