Current snow depths include 16 inches in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, and 9 inches in Des Moines, Iowa, and Omaha, Nebraska.

A stormy pattern ahead for much of the Corn Belt

Across the Corn Belt, cold, dry weather prevails, with sub-zero temperatures noted early Tuesday in the upper Midwest. Snow covers the region, except the Ohio Valley, following a weekend storm. In fact, multiple recent storms have left snow depths greater than one-half foot in much of the northern and western Corn Belt. Early Tuesday, snow depths stand at 11 inches in Minneapolis-St.

Weather systems advance across the Midwest

Across the Corn Belt, bitterly cold weather covers the upper Midwest, where Friday morning’s low temperatures ranged from 0 to -20°. Cold, breezy weather prevails across the remainder of the Corn Belt, with snow showers confined to the upper Great Lakes region.

Hyper-active pattern continues across the Midwest

Across the Corn Belt, cold, breezy weather prevails. Snow showers linger across the eastern Corn Belt, especially downwind of the Great Lakes. Minor to moderate flooding continues along numerous creeks and rivers in the central and eastern Corn Belt, and many low-lying winter wheat fields are saturated or have standing water.

Midwest pattern remains active, colder, too

Across the Corn Belt, the latest in a series of storms is blanketing the upper Midwest with snow. Meanwhile in the eastern Corn Belt, heavy rain is sparking widespread, lowland flooding. In addition, mostly minor to moderate flooding is occurring along several Midwestern waterways, including the Rock, Illinois, White, Wabash, and Ohio Rivers.

Cold to quickly moderate, pattern remains active

Across the Corn Belt, cold, breezy weather prevails in the wake of a departing storm system. However, lowland flooding continues in many Midwestern areas due to runoff from heavy rain and melted snow. Currently, snow showers linger in portions of the Great Lake States, particularly across Michigan.

Sharply colder, more active winter pattern ahead

In the Corn Belt, heavy showers are maintaining the threat of lowland flooding in the Ohio Valley. Flood warnings are in effect early Thursday in several areas from the Ozark Plateau into southern Ohio.

More rain; much colder days to follow

Across the Corn Belt, locally heavy rain is developing across the lower Midwest, while snow is blanketing portions of the upper Great Lakes region. Parts of the central Corn Belt, including northern Illinois, are contending with the aftereffects of an ice storm.
