The AM wheat quotes are backing off by 6 cents in Chicago and by a dime in KC. The wheat market was up by as much as 1.7%. Chicago futures rallied by 8 cents for the close. KC futures ended the day 9 cents higher and spring wheat was up by 6 ¾ cents to 10 cents. 

The 8-14 day outlook is calling for warmer than normal temps for the Eastern half of the US, with the Westers a little cooler. The central Plains are expected to be near normal temps for the first half of March. Much of the US (with exception to the Dakotas and MT) is expected to see above normal chances for precip. 

Wire sources had South Korea as buying 172.3k MT of wheat from U.S., Canada, from Australia.
