Temps recovering on the Plains; some beneficial moisture southern sections

Across the Corn Belt, cool, dry weather prevails.  Thursday morning’s minimum temperatures dipped below 10°F in the upper Great Lakes region, with scattered sub-zero readings.  Early-week upper Midwestern snow, which in North Dakota totaled 3.7 inches in Grand Forks and 2.7 inches in Fargo, remains on the ground.  Most of the remainder of the  Midwest is snow-free.  

On the Plains, temperatures are rapidly rebounding from a brief cold snap.  In fact, Thursday’s high temperatures will approach or reach 60°F as far north as central and eastern Montana.
