Light snow was noted in portions of the northern and eastern Midwest Wednesday afternoon, with dry conditions elsewhere in the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions. Temperatures ranged from the single digits in northeastern Iowa, northern Wisconsin and northern Minnesota to the mid-60s in southern Texas and southern Georgia.

Thursday will feature moderate to heavy snow and blizzard-strength winds in the northern and central Midwest. Other areas will be dry; however, very windy conditions will cause transportation issues in the Plains and Midwest.
