This would be much bigger news if it was April 25th. However, every day it remains wet and or cold closes that planting window and the entire growing season just a little bit.

there's some corn planted in ALL these states...it might be big news for Aug already b/c it's shaving off a few million new crop bushels that 1 week ago appeared would be available before next mktg yr.
if any central Tx Wheat was still alive yesterday---may not be by tomorrow.
sw from yesterday---
The area to be concerned with for freeze would be the I-40 region of tx/ok down to dallas/FW area. They had enough moisture this winter to have wheat growing pretty well and had to be cold enough to get hurt.
