Additional frosts, freezes for parts of the Heartland; some drought-relief ahead for the central, southern Plains

A storm system currently centered over the upper Great Lakes region will gradually weaken.  However, the threat of locally severe thunderstorms will linger through Saturday in parts of the eastern U.S., while snow showers will shift from the northern Plains into portions of the Great Lakes States. 

In the storm’s wake, frost and freezes should occur as far south as the central Plains and the Tennessee Valley.  Additional frost and freezes may occur next week, possibly extending as far south as Texas’ northern panhandle.

Early next week, a new weather system crossing the southern U.S. has the potential to deliver drought-easing precipitation across the southern half of the Plains.

Early estimates indicate as much as 1 to 2 inches of rain could fall across portions of the central and southern Plains.  Elsewhere, mostly dry weather will prevail during the next 5 days from California to the Desert Southwest.
