Across the Corn Belt, record-setting warmth remains in place.  It was the warmest February 1 on record in many Midwestern locations, including Joplin, Missouri (72°F); Lincoln, Nebraska (65°F); Burlington, Iowa (60°F); Rockford, Illinois (55°F); and La Crosse, Wisconsin (52°F).  Navigating rural and farm roads has become easier in recent days, although some areas remain muddy in the wake of recent rainfall and melting snow.  

On the Plains, temperatures have slightly fallen, but remain significantly above normal.
