The Weather Front On-Line

The Weather Front On-Line

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.

Active, moisture-laden days ahead for the Midwest

Across the Corn Belt, mild but foggy weather prevails in advance of an approaching storm system. The mild weather has melted some snow and has resulted in locally muddy conditions.

Milder for now, Winter storm potential late this week

Across the Corn Belt, wintry precipitation (snow, sleet, and freezing rain) is falling across the lower Great Lakes region. Conditions are improving across the remainder of the Midwest, although dense fog lingers in a few areas. A generally shallow snow cover remains in place across much of the Corn Belt. Current snow depths include 2 inches in Minneapolis-St.

Cold pattern to moderate in the days ahead

Across the Corn Belt, locally heavy snow squalls are returning to favored areas downwind of the Great Lakes. Dry, bitterly cold weather covers the remainder of the Midwest, maintaining stress on livestock.

Another round of cold wave weather

Across the Corn Belt, another brutally cold surge of air is maintaining supplemental feed requirements for winter-weary livestock. Windy weather is adding to the animals’ discomfort, especially in the eastern Corn Belt, while snow showers are developing downwind of the Great Lakes.
