This includes much of South Dakota, northern Nebraska, northern Iowa, southern Minnesota and Wisconsin. Good news!

And, looking out the next one to two weeks, average to slightly below average temperatures are likely in the eastern two thirds of the United States and Canada. This pattern favors clippers coming with light snow every few days.
