The Weather Front On-Line

Cold pattern to persist, snow ahead

Across the Corn Belt, frigid weather is returning to the upper Midwest, where Thursday morning’s temperatures plunged below 0°—accompanied by gusty winds. Meanwhile, a few rain/snow showers are developing across the Ohio Valley, in advance of a strong cold front.

A more typical mid-Winter pattern ahead

Across the Corn Belt, a few snow showers are occurring in the Great Lakes region. Cloudy but dry weather covers the remainder of the Midwest, accompanied by above-normal temperatures and breezy conditions. Snow cover has largely disappeared from the central and eastern Corn Belt.

Much colder, far more active WInter pattern ahead

Across the Corn Belt, cold, cloudy weather prevails. Snow showers are occurring in some areas, especially in the eastern Corn Belt, while sub-zero temperatures were noted early Monday in parts of the upper Midwest. Mild weather in advance of the latest cold wave reduced or eliminated Midwestern snow cover; the snow depth in Minneapolis-St.

A more Winter-like weather pattern ahead

Across the Corn Belt, mild weather continues to erode a previously extensive snow cover. Friday’s high temperatures exceeded 60° in portions of the southern Corn Belt. Still, substantial snow remains on the ground from Nebraska into the upper Great Lakes region, following the early-week storm.

A mild late-January pattern ahead

Across the Corn Belt, rain and snow showers linger across the Great Lakes region in the wake of a departing storm system. In areas where snow fell, gusty winds are causing some blowing and drifting. At daybreak, the snow depth in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, stood at 9 inches.

Milder, wetter days ahead for much the Midwest

Across the Corn Belt, mild air is arriving, starting across the upper Midwest. The warmer-than-normal weather has begun to erode a widespread, generally shallow snow cover. Early Friday, snow depths stood at 3 inches in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota; Rockford, Illinois; Indianapolis, Indiana; and Dayton, Ohio.

A milder, more active pattern ahead

Across the Corn Belt, cold, breezy weather prevails in the wake of a departing cold front. Flurries and snow showers linger in several areas, especially in the Ohio Valley and downwind of the Great Lakes. A variable snow cover blankets most of the region; current depths include 5 inches in Rockford, Illinois, and Columbus, Ohio.

Roller-coaster ride of weather, temps to continue

Across the Corn Belt, cold, blustery weather trails Thursday’s snow storm across the upper Midwest. Meanwhile, rain is changing to snow as colder air arrives across the Ohio Valley and the lower Great Lakes region.

Big changes in weather ahead

Across the Corn Belt, mild, mostly dry weather prevails in advance of an approaching cold front. Patchy light rain is falling, however, in the eastern Corn Belt, where previously fallen snow continues to melt.
