It's 71 degrees here at the house right now, with no rain in sight. An unexpectedly perfect day for me to get out and finish getting the leaves cleaned up in the back yard and do some work on my gutters. Looking at the Midwestern view of the METAR observations, there is quite the spectrum of weather and temperatures across the country. In the upper left side of this map, there's a reading of 19F in southern Minnesota, freezing drizzle in Iowa, and snow in Wisconsin and Michigan. Quite a temperature contrast across the frontal boundary in Indiana - 63F in Bloomington, and below freezing at 30F at Grissom Air Force Base in Peru. The frontal boundary is easily picked out on this map by the wind shift and temperature gradient.

Observations at 2:43PM
