A hot, dry summer has seen reservoir levels fall dramatically

Twelve years ago Brazilians across much of the country faced a stark choice: cut down on their energy use or be cut off completely.

U.S. corn planters idle as rains sweep crop belt

 

Mon Apr 8, 2013 8:32am EDT

* Wet week to stall early corn plantings

* Moisture welcomed in drought-stricken areas

* Another rainstorm expected early next week

By Sam Nelson

CHICAGO, April 8 (Reuters) – Widespread rainfall in the U.S. Midwest and Plains this week will add valuable soil moisture in drought-stricken areas but also stall spring fieldwork and prevent early corn seedings, an agricultural meteorologist said on Monday.

“It’s an active storm system leaving 0.2 to 0.6 inch of rain Monday and 1.0 to 2.00 inches or more Tuesday through Thursday in most of the Midwest,” said John Dee, meteorologist for Global Weather Monitoring.

Dee said lighter rains of roughly 0.25 inch could be expected in the driest areas of southwest Kansas and the Oklahoma and Texas Panhandles.

“The precipitation will be in the form of snow in the Dakotas and western Nebraska, with 6.0 to 12.0 inches possible,” he said.  READ MORE…. http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/04/08/usa-weather-drought-idUSL2N0CV0E620130408
