    There is still plenty of time to plant Corn and these floods will ease the drought conditions

    "It will be warmer, with not as much precipitation next week, so there will be some improvement for fieldwork," Dee said.

    The turn to excessive wet weather has caused U.S. farmers to fall behind their average pace for planting the spring corn crop. There is still plenty of time to plant it and realize satisfactory yields,

    • The worst U.S. drought in more than 50 years has quickly been replaced be heavy rainfall and flooding on many streams and rivers, boosting prospects for crop production but also stalling early seedings of the 2013 corn crop.

      "Many areas had up to 4.0 to 6.0 inches of rain last week so there is some flooding now," Dee said. "Certainly there is no concern now about drought, at least for the short term."

      Dee said the drought-stricken region of southwestern Kansas and the Panhandles of Oklahoma and Texas would remain dry so "there will be little benefit to them."

      Cold weather, including snow, will cover the northern Plains spring wheat region this week, he said. Snowfall of 4.0 to 8.0 inches is expected over the next 24 hours in the northern Midwest, including Minnesota and possibly northwest Iowa, according to Dee.

      Cold temperatures in the 20s (degrees Fahrenheit) are expected in the Plains winter wheat region early Tuesday and Wednesday, which may cause additional harm to the crop, he said.

      "It will be warmer, with not as much precipitation next week, so there will be some improvement for fieldwork," Dee said.

        * Chilly and wet weather this week
        * Warmer weather next week to buoy fieldwork
        * Drought area continues to shrink
        By Sam Nelson
        CHICAGO, April 22 (Reuters) - Wet and cold weather in the U.S. Midwest this week will further slow corn plantings while adding valuable soil moisture to drought-stricken regions, an agricultural meteorologist said on Monday.
