Stx togansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Balmy Spell Centers in New England By UNITED PRESS It might as well be spring in New England. A lingering balmy spell which supplanted a cold snap several days ago today gave promise of more mild temperatures and light rains. In contrast to wintery conditions of 48 hours ago when the temperature at Burlington, Vt., dropped to 1 degree above zero, the midnight reading was 46 degrees Thursday night. Similar moderate temperatures were common throughout the Northeast. j A wide pattern of scattered | showers extended down the entire Atlantic seaboard, and extended as far inland as Tennessee and the Ohio Valley. A cooling trend in the Ohio Valley moved northward into the Great Lakes region and also southwestward into eastern Texas. Great cooling was experienced in the 'four state area of Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and Arkansas. Snow flurries whipped through the Dakotas, Wyoming and parts of Colorado as a cold front moved into the area, a warming trend to its rear. The U.S. Weather Bureau issued cold wave warnings for a vast area in the Midwest, including the Dakotas, Minnesota, Iowa, and parts of Nebraska, Missouri and Kansas. High winds were expected to accompany the cold wave. West of the Rockies it was generally fair with little change in temperatures.
