Tranquil weather across most of the Heartland; beneficial moisture on the far southern Plains

Across the Corn Belt, mild, dry weather favors any late-season fieldwork, as well as farm maintenance activities.  Thursday’s Midwestern high temperatures should generally range from 45 to 55°F. 

On the Plains, unusually warm weather prevails along and near the Canadian border, further reducing the coverage of any remaining snow.  Nationally, snow coverage in the Lower 48 States stood at 19% early Thursday, the lowest mid-December value since 2006.  Farther south, however, a slow-moving storm system is producing rain and wet snow across the central and southern High Plains, leading to rural travel disruptions and a temporary increase in livestock stress.
