Across the Corn Belt, lingering snow showers are mostly confined to areas downwind of the Great Lakes. Elsewhere, frigid, breezy weather prevails. Midwestern temperatures plunged below 0°F Tuesday morning from the Mississippi Valley westward, maintaining stress on livestock that endured back-to-back snowstorms last week. The most significant accumulations stretch from eastern Nebraska to Michigan, with some locations reporting more than a foot of snow on the ground.
On the Plains, frigid conditions persist.
