Light snow will move across the Southern Plains Thursday. The rest of the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions will be dry. Temperatures will continue to be very cold for the season, causing further disruption to transportation along with stress to livestock. A round of light rain and snow is headed for the Far West, but will do little to alleviate the extreme drought condition there.
Highs: Single digits/teens Prairies, Plains, Texas Panhandle, all but eastern Midwest; 20s/30s western and northern Texas, Delta, eastern Midwest; 40s/50s remainder of Texas, Deep South; 60s Southeast.
