For instance, many fields remain unharvested, especially in North Dakota, and fields that went unplanted last year may have weed issues this year. Large areas of Missouri, Illinois, and southern Michigan had more than twice the normal totals for January. There were, however, a few cooler spots in the High Plains during the month of January. As a result, lake-effect snow events become possible much later in the season than on average, which can lead to higher seasonal snowfall totals. All but a small handful of CONUS climate divisions were warmer than average. Minimum temperatures for January were cooler than average for some small areas of central inland and far southwestern Western Australia.
