Another crazy stretch of weather for the Midwest. Field fires in central and southern Illinois, followed by nine-inches of snow in central Iowa and then back to 70 degree temperatures later this week. The first dose of winter was felt along the I-80 corridor in Iowa on Monday. Nine inches of show was reported in Polk City, which is between Des Moines and Ames. Bryce Anderson is Chief Agriculture Meteorologist for DTN.
High temps will return to the 50’s on Friday for much of Illinois.
