FOR TUESDAY: (8/9) Forecasts keep rain in parts of the Midwest early this week. Highs in the mid-90s are expected in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa this week, but forecasts show highs will be in the 80s by the weekend. The 6- to 10-day (Aug.13-17) puts hot weather in the northern Midwest and northern Plains, with below-normal chances for rain in the Dakotas and normal chances for much of the Midwest. Seasonally, one buys grains this week. Hard to buy corn but wheat and beans are better values. Cattle still look lower 1-2 more days and hogs higher into Thursday.
