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.
