Rain and out-of-season snow are in store for the southeastern U.S. Thursday. Otherwise, dry conditions will dominate the U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions. This pattern continues to produce much concern regarding drought prospects in the western Midwest and Plains crop areas for late winter and ahead of the spring season.

Highs: Single digits to 20s eastern Canadian Prairies, northeastern Plains, northern Midwest; 30s/40s western Prairies, northwestern through central Plains, remainder of the Midwest, Delta; 50s Southern Plains, Texas Panhandle, western, northern, central and eastern Texas, Deep South; 60s/70s south Texas, Southeast.
