Latest USDA weather update for western FSU

Dormant winter wheat remained insulated by a moderate to deep snowpack.

However, warmer weather (2-4°C above normal) melted the snow cover in southern portions of Russia’s Southern District (Krasnodar Krai), though another round of snow was approaching at week’s end.

Winter crop areas from central Ukraine into central Russia remained covered by 10 to 40 cm of snow.
