AMES, I.A.(WNAX)- Much of the northern plains have been basking in mild dry conditions for most of the late fall.

Dennis Todey, Head of the Midwest Climate Hub in Ames Iowa says the arctic chill is way to our north.

Todey says the same weather pattern has been in place for several weeks,

Todey says there will be changes by the end of the month.

Todey says while there has been very little precipitation for the past few weeks, that won’t be a major concern until early spring.
