CHICAGO (Reuters) - Some areas of the parched U.S. Midwest were expected to get more beneficial rain on Wednesday but cities, towns and farmers were still struggling with triple-digit heat and little relief was seen from the worst drought in half a century.

Forecasters said that after weeks of hot, dry weather the northern Corn Belt from eastern Nebraska through northern Illinois was likely to see a second day of scattered rains. But in the southern Midwest including Missouri and most of Illinois, Indiana and Ohio more hot dry weather was likely.
