The Weather Front On-Line (March 2011)

Warmer weather to the west...

Across the Corn Belt, cool, mostly dry weather continues. Wet conditions have limited spring planting preparations in the southern Corn Belt, while lowland flooding is affecting parts of the upper Midwest.


Still cool across the Midwest...

Across the Corn Belt, cold, mostly dry weather prevails, except for a few snow showers in the Ohio and middle Missouri Valleys. In the upper Midwest, cold weather has reduced runoff into swollen creeks and river.


More cold weather across the Corn Belt...

Across the Corn Belt, cold, mostly dry weather prevails. A few snow showers dot the central Corn Belt, while lowland flooding persists across portions of the western Corn Belt.


A chilly, damp pattern continues...

Across the Corn Belt, some light snow is overspreading westernmost areas. Meanwhile, flooding continues in parts of the western Corn Belt. For example, the James River at Mitchell, South Dakota, crested 8.14 feet above flood stage on March 26—just 0.19 foot (2.28 inches) below the April 2001 high-water mark.


A cold, damp pattern continues...

Across the Corn Belt, widespread precipitation (rain, sleet, freezing rain, and snow) covers Iowa, Illinois, and Missouri. Significant flooding is underway in parts of the western Corn Belt, although recent cold weather has curbed runoff into swollen creeks and rivers.


Cold & somewhat unsettled across the Heartland...

Across the Corn Belt, lowland flooding is underway in the upper Midwest, with the highest water levels currently affecting eastern South Dakota and portions of southern Minnesota. However, cold weather is temporarily minimizing additional runoff into swollen creeks and rivers.


A cold pattern ahead...

Across the Corn Belt, snow is falling across northern areas. Meanwhile, scattered rain showers dot the eastern Corn Belt. Chilly weather prevails, except for lingering warmth in the Ohio Valley. 


Wide-ranging weather, temperatures across the Midwest...

Across the Corn Belt, precipitation (rain and snow) is developing across northern areas. In the upper Midwest, where some lowland flooding has already developed, additional moisture is not welcome.


A wide-range of weather this week...

A cold front will turn become stationary over central Illinois during Monday. Isolated showers or thunderstorms will be possible Monday morning and again Monday evening near the front.


A more active pattern set to resume...

Across the Corn Belt, mostly dry weather prevails. Lowland flooding continues in the lower Ohio Valley and has developed in the upper Midwest, including the Vermillion River basin in eastern South Dakota.
