Cold weather covers much of the Plains

On the Plains, cold weather prevails. Freezes were noted Friday morning as far south as Texas’ northern panhandle. Light snow is providing winter wheat with some beneficial moisture on the central High Plains.

Across the Corn Belt, showers are occurring in the vicinity of a cold front stretching from Michigan into the lower Ohio Valley. In the front’s wake, cold, dry weather favors late-season corn and soybean harvesting.

In the South, gusty northerly winds and a few rain showers are occurring along the southern Atlantic Coast in conjunction with Hurricane Sandy, currently centered less than 500 miles south-southeast of Charleston, South Carolina. Meanwhile, showers associated with a cold front are crossing the lower Mississippi Valley. Between weather systems, warm, dry weather favors summer crop harvesting and other fieldwork.

In the West, mostly dry weather favors autumn fieldwork. Cool weather prevails, except in California.
