Stuck in a rut

A big trough of low pressure as descended into the Midwest from Canada. It’s spinning its wheels in the mud for a few days. It’s also littered with small ripples in the atmosphere that will ensure some small flurries or minor snow showers extend into Thursday, Friday and even the weekend. That big trough will be a cold hold on the nation’s mid-section. We’ll continue with below normal temperatures in the stretch too. But cloud cover will be our friend at night, keeping the worst of the worst away with that blanket.
