Light snow will fall Friday across the northern and eastern Canadian Prairies and east-southeast across the Great lakes region of the U.S. The balance of the key growing areas will be dry. This pattern continues of much concern for crop areas of the north and central plains and western Midwest due to dryness.

Highs Friday: 20s to upper 30s Canadian Prairies, upper teens to low 40s Northern Plains, upper 40s to low 60s central and Southern Plains, 30s to low 50s Midwest, low to middle 50s Delta, 40s to near 60 southeast, 60s to low 70s Florida, 60s south Texas.
