The Weather Front On-Line

An active pattern to continue into next week

Across the Corn Belt, rain showers are pushing eastward across the lower Missouri Valley and the middle Mississippi Valley. Meanwhile, cold, dry weather prevails across the northern and eastern Corn Belt.

A cool, wet pattern across the Corn Belt

Across the Corn Belt, mild air is pushing into the middle Mississippi Valley. In contrast, cold weather lingers across the northern and eastern Corn Belt. A few snow showers are occurring downwind of the Great Lakes.

Cool weather to linger, more moisture ahead

Across the Corn Belt, cool, breezy conditions persist, although winds are diminishing across the upper Midwest. Snow showers linger downwind of the Great Lakes.

A quieter, milder pattern ahead next week

Across the Corn Belt, a few snow showers linger downwind of the lower Great Lakes. Cold, dry, breezy weather covers the remainder of the Midwest. Flooding generally continues to subside, except along some larger rivers. For example, lowland flooding persists along the Wabash and Illinois Rivers, and in the lower Ohio Valley.

Drier days, seasonal temps ahead for the Midwest

Across the Corn Belt, snow showers and cool, breezy conditions linger in the wake of a departing storm system, especially in the vicinity of the Great Lakes. A shallow snow cover exists across much of the northern and western Corn Belt; current depths include an inch in Omaha, Nebraska, and Rockford, Illinois.

Largely fair, dry weather ahead next week

Across the Corn Belt, mild, dry weather prevails in the Ohio Valley, where flood concerns are mostly subsiding. Farther west, a low-pressure system over Iowa is producing snowy, breezy conditions in the upper Midwest.

Pleasant early-March weekend weather

Across the Corn Belt, recent locally heavy rain from Illinois eastward aggravated lowland flooding. Many larger rivers are also experiencing significant flooding. The Ohio River crest is in the vicinity of Evansville, Indiana, where the river is nearly 4.9 feet above flood stage and at its highest level since March 1997.

Spells of wet weather, but drier days ahead

Across the Corn Belt, rain showers are developing from Illinois eastward, maintaining extremely wet conditions and aggravating lowland flooding. In contrast, the upper Midwest remains covered by snow; Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, has a current snow depth of 7 inches.

More rain ahead for the eastern, southern Corn Belt

Across the Corn Belt, a substantial snow cover exists in the upper Midwest, where snow depths include 9 inches in Grand Forks, North Dakota, and 8 inches in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Meanwhile, mild, dry weather across the central and eastern Corn Belt is allowing water to drain from fields and streams into larger rivers.
