Across the Corn Belt, a band of wet snow stretching from Missouri to Ohio and southern Michigan is causing local travel disruptions. From the Ohio River southward, rain is falling. Meanwhile, mostly dry but windy weather covers the upper Midwest. Wednesday morning’s low temperatures fell to near 0°F in the Red River Valley of the North.
On the Plains, cool, breezy, mostly dry weather prevails. Across portions of the southern Plains, winter grains are benefiting from a fresh blanket of snow; Lubbock, Texas, received 7.2 inches on January 24, while totals reached 2.8 inches in Amarillo, Texas, and 2.1 inches in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
