Across the Corn Belt, scattered showers extend southwestward from the upper Great Lakes region. Due to unusually mild weather, rain is falling as far north as Lake Superior. Meanwhile in the eastern Corn Belt, mild, dry weather continues to promote late-season fieldwork, including final corn harvest efforts. Friday’s high temperatures should reach 60°F as far north as the lower Ohio Valley.
On the Plains, rain lingers early Friday from eastern Kansas to central Texas.
