The low pressure system that moved over the central Plains will continue moving northeastward and over the Great Lakes, moving into eastern Canada. Cold temperatures along the northern side of this system will allow for snow showers to persist for parts of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. Winter weather advisories have been issued for these locations as snowfall totals will range from 6 to 10 inches in northern Wisconsin and the upper peninsula of Michigan. Overnight low temperatures will drop into the single digits again in these areas, with daytime highs hovering around freezing. The southern side of this low pressure system will create a cold front that extends across the Midwest into the Plains. This will allow for scattered showers and possibly some thunderstorms to develop across Colorado, moving into the southern and central Plains into the afternoon and evening hours.

Further west, a low pressure system moves into the Pacific Northwest, pushing abundant moisture in from the Pacific Ocean. This will produce moderate rain showers across Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, with snow likely to develop in the mountains. The rest of the West Coast will remain dry and mild as high pressure dominates.

The stretch of the Mississippi River near Minneapolis crested at a new record on this date in 1965, topping the previous record by four feet. As the flood moved downstream, high river levels were recorded southward to Hannibal, MO. Even though the events along the river caused 100 million dollars damage, early warnings saved the lives of countless people as only 12 fatalities were reported.
