A typical January feel

A typical January feel

A cold northwest wind will prevail but with much less speed for today.  Despite abundant sunshine, temperatures will remain well-below seasonal expectations.

A moderating trend in temperatures will settle over the region on Wednesday and then continue through the end of the week, with high temperatures in the 40s for Thursday and the lower 50s by Friday.  Cooler, more seasonal temperatures are expected for the weekend. Weather-wise, an uneventful period of weather continues with little, if any, precipitation ahead.

Elsewhere across the Corn Belt, drought has gradually developed in recent months in the upper Midwest.

In the South, pastures and winter grains would benefit from a soaking rain.

In the West, extremely dry weather continues to adversely affect rangeland and pastures in much of California.
