Oct 30- Wheat futures are up 1 to 4 cents and corn is nominally unchanged. Soybeans are giving back about 12 cents from the previous rally. US exports reported this morning were uneventful, dare I say bearish, but Iraq is tendering for 50,000 MT of wheat and the US Ag attache in Russia lowered their 14/15 wheat production estimate 1.5 MMT. That is something to keep a weather eye to the horizon on.

A light rain and snow mix along with windy conditions is in store for the eastern Midwest Friday, focusing on the Great Lakes. This combination will cause some disruptions in harvest and possible transportation issues. Dry conditions are in store elsewhere, offering good chances for harvest activity. Very cold conditions in northern and central areas will help drying for crops as well. » More DTN Weather Commentary
