A weak storm system sliding through the Ohio Valley is spreading unsettled weather into the eastern third of the U.S. Rain will continue crossing the Carolinas and Southeast, with light snow blanketing the Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic, and Northeast. Temperatures will remain cool, ranging from the 20s and 30s in the north, to 40s and 50s along the Carolina and Gulf coasts. Florida will see highs climb to the lower 70s.
Meanwhile, a Pacific storm will continue to dig into the northern Rockies today. Rain showers will fall along the coast and in the valleys, with snow showers blanketing the mountain peaks. High temperatures will rise into the 40s, with 20s and 30s expected at the higher elevations.
Elsewhere, high pressure will bring sunny skies from the Plains and Deep South to California. However, temperatures will vary greatly under the February sun. The northern Plains will see temperatures struggle to rise into the teens; 20s and 30s will stretch across the southern Plains, Deep South and southern Rockies, and 40s and 50s will prevail in Texas and the Great Basin. The Desert Southwest and California will enjoy warm temperatures in the 60s and 70s.
