Across the Corn Belt, rain is falling early Monday from the Ohio Valley into the lower Great Lakes region. The remainder of the Midwest is experiencing cool, dry weather. The coldest weather, relative to normal, remains firmly entrenched across deeply snow-covered sections of the upper Midwest, including Minnesota and the eastern Dakotas.
On the Plains, cooler-than-normal conditions are in place. In fact, Monday’s high temperatures will remain below 20°F in eastern North Dakota. Farther south, an elevated wildfire threat exists across the drought-stricken southern High Plains. Elsewhere, a small area of light snow is emerging from the Rockies and spreading across the central Plains.
