1 T-storm Weather Summary Despite scattered t-storms Sat.-Sun. in central and northern areas in Argentina, more will likely be needed especially in sunflower areas of the southwest. Some t-storms likely return to Argentina in 10 to 14 days, which will likely be needed in at least southern growing areas. Conversely, Brazil remains seasonably-wet into mid- January. Intense coldness affects U.S. HRW wheat (and cattle) Monday, including central / southern Kansas where it is more likely than previously to be snow-free; temperatures moderate beyond Monday. T-storm Weather Highlights No change: scattered t-storms dot central and northern Argentina Sat.-Sun., 0.50 to 1.00 most common. Slightly wetter: one week of dry weather begins Sun.-Mon. in Arg., followed by some t-storms within Jan No change: t-storms focus on central and southern growing areas of Brazil through Mon.-Tue., then drier. No change: t-storm coverage increases in northern areas of Brazil in 7 to 10 days as a wetter period begins. The central U.S. will be intensely cold Monday with wheat burnback probable in at least central Kansas. A significant winter storm is not foreseen for key U.S. livestock; coldness occasionally eases in 7 to 10 days. Model Notes None.

2 SOUTH AMERICA DISCUSSION Weather Outlook In Argentina, most growing areas will be drier than normal over the next 10 to 14 days as hot upper-level high pressure suppresses rainfall over the next two to three days, and cool surface-level high pressure suppresses rainfall for one week starting Sun.-Mon. That said, scattered t-storms occur Sat.-Sun. when a strong cool front sweeps northward, causing 0.50 to 1.00 to affect the northern half to two-thirds of the grain and oilseed belt (6-11). A few t-storms also form next Thu.-Fri. when a brief puff of heat is tempered by a weak cool front in central and southern areas. A seasonably-stormy period most likely follows in 10 to 14 days (Jan. 7-11) when a wave or two of energy pass, producing 0.50 to 1.00 amounts that will likely be needed because ~2.25 is normal of the next two weeks, and medium- and long-term dryness are expected to remain fairly extensive (especially in the north and south). In Brazil, several t-storm clusters affect most areas at one point or another over the next 5 to 10 days, resulting in near-normal rainfall of 1.75 to 3.50 across a large area, including 80% to 90% of first-crop corn and soybean production. Regarding timing, t-storms affect central and northern areas over the next two days as the remnant of a cool front lingers, followed by organized rainfall in southern areas (including Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina) Sun.-Mon. when a strong cool front passes, followed by five days of drying in central and southern areas as heavy t-storm focus on northern growing areas (including key areas of Goias and Mato Grosso, and drier areas of Bahia and Minas Gerais). Recent Weather Scattered t-storms focused on Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul yesterday, while a small t-storm cluster also benefited some of the driest areas of Chaco (18). Temperatures varied widely (19). Crop and Soil Moisture Discussion Areas of significant rainfall over the last two weeks sharply improved topsoil moisture for corn and soybeans in Argentina (but not sunflowers). However, rain is needed in all areas because ~50% of corn and soybeans (and 85% of sunflowers) were drier than normal over the last 30 days, and that the last 60 days were drier than normal across a wide area (13-17). Brazil has been considerably wetter, though a few pockets of dryness linger, especially in Bahia, Minas Gerais, Rio Grande do Sul, and Santa Catarina where a lack of rain left 55% and 41% of first-crop corn and soybeans in Brazil drier than normal over the last two weeks, and 52% and 33% over the last 30 days.

3 Central U.S. Weather Outlook Several Arctic cold fronts pass over the next 10 days, frequently leaving the central and eastern U.S. sharply colder than normal. UNITED STATES DISCUSSION Coldest weather for wheat (and livestock) occurs Sun. and Mon. mornings when minimums fall into the - 0s ( F) across the northwest two-thirds of the central U.S. (including much of Kansas, Illinois, and Missouri), and the -10s and -20s across the northwest half (including isolated -30s in the Dakotas and Minnesota). Light snow is likely to precede intense coldness in snow-free areas of South Dakota, limiting the potential for additional burnback and winterkill because extensive snowpack will exist by then (including all points from Nebraska and north). Light snowpack currently exists to the south of Nebraska, but the potential for significant snow prior to the arrival of extreme cold is low, most notably leaving wheat in / near Kansas at risk of burnback and winterkill early next week especially along the southern fringe of snowpack in central / northern Kansas where minimums around -10 F are likely, but snowpack will be light to non-existent (22, 23). Otherwise, temperatures moderate in 10 to 14 days as Pacific air begins to mix with Arctic air, warming temperatures to approximately normal levels for early January. The milder setup will allow a strong system to pass within Jan. 7-10, introducing the potential for a significant winter storm in the Delta and southeast half of the Corn belt. That said, similarly to much of the last three months, the system is also likely to bypass the Plains where a lack of humidity suppresses precipitation, continuing agricultural drought for wheat in the Plains. Outside of some light snows in varying areas until then, a winter storm is not foreseen in the central U.S. Recent Weather Temperatures were intensely cold yesterday in HRW wheat (and cattle) areas of the Plains where maximums and minimums in the +/-0s to +10s left the crop 17 F below normal, and likely induced burnback and winterkill in central and northern South Dakota yesterday where minimums fell to around - 10 F for the third consecutive morning (26, 27). That said, temperatures were 10 F to 30 F warmer this morning than yesterday morning in central and northern cattle and wheat areas (26). Crop and Soil Moisture Overview Much of the Plains were unusually dry over the last 60 days with little or no precipitation having fallen. 90-day dryness is becoming evident for the crop as agricultural drought begins for HRW wheat (27, 28).
