The Weather Front On-Line

Dramatic shift in weather ahead by Christimas

Across the Corn Belt, mild, dry weather prevails. However, mud and melting snow are hampering final corn harvest efforts in the Great Lakes region.

Milder days ahead for the Midwest...for now

Across the Corn Belt, below-normal temperatures east of the Mississippi River contrast with mild weather farther west. Snow squalls downwind of the Great Lakes continue to produce locally heavy accumulations.

Moderating temperatures ahead for the Midwest

Across the Corn Belt, a storm system centered over the upper Mississippi Valley is producing snow in the upper Great Lakes region and is resulting in very windy weather across the upper Midwest. In the eastern Corn Belt, fields have largely frozen, allowing any remaining harvest efforts to proceed.

Brief cold snap to yield to milder days

Across the Corn Belt, frigid, windy weather prevails in the wake of a cold front’s passage. The harshest weather is occurring in the lower Great Lakes region, where snow squalls accompany the cold, windy conditions.

Temps to vary, but milder days to return

Across the Corn Belt, snow showers are developing across the Great Lakes region in conjunction with an approaching cold front. In addition, windy weather is spreading across the upper Midwest.

Seasonal cold continues across the Midwest

In the Corn Belt, snow showers linger downwind of the Great Lakes. Elsewhere, dry, seasonably cold weather favors any late-season fieldwork, especially as soils begin to freeze. A shallow snow cover exists across parts of the upper Midwest, with 2 inches reported on the ground early Friday in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota.

An early-Winter feel & look across the Corn Belt

Across the Corn Belt, cool, breezy, mostly dry weather trails the passage of a cold front. Following an early-week storm, a variable snow cover blankets the upper Midwest; current snow depths include 4 inches in Grand Forks, North Dakota, and 2 inches in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota.

A more typical December feel across the Corn Belt

Across the Corn Belt, rain is halting final harvest efforts in the Ohio Valley and the lower Great Lakes region. Meanwhile in the upper Midwest, precipitation has largely ended but windy weather persists, following Monday’s transition from rain to snow and concurrent arrival of sharply colder air.

A major weather pattern shift ahead

Across the Corn Belt, mild, dry weather prevails. The return to dry weather in the eastern Corn Belt favors a resumption of final summer crop harvest efforts, following recent showers.
