Today's Weather Outlook

The work week will end much quieter than it started, with almost the entire U.S. seeing bright autumn sunshine. Temperatures will run the gamut from autumn chill to late-summer warmth.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Gretchen Mishek has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.

High pressure building over much of the U.S. will mean plenty of sunshine from the Atlantic to the Pacific and everywhere in between. A few showers are likely across the Pacific Northwest into the Intermountain West, as well as along the southeastern shores of the Great Lakes and into northern New England. These showers will be more a nuisance than a real problem.

The sunshine-filled day will not translate into warm weather everywhere. A large stretch of the central U.S. from the central Mississippi and Tennessee valleys northward into the Great Lakes and Midwest will wake up to freezing temperatures this morning. Highs will climb into the low to mid-50s which will be close to 10 degrees colder than the seasonal normal.

Cool upper 50s and low 60s will be found across the rest of the northern U.S. tier stretching from the Northwest all of the way into the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Even Florida will be unseasonably cool as highs struggle to reach into the low 70s.

California, the Southeast, southern Rockies and southern Plains will see temperatures in the 70s this afternoon, with the Deserts and southern Texas climbing into the 80s.
