Today's Weather Outlook

The weekend will close out the same way it started for large stretches of the U.S. - with quiet weather. The only fly in the ointment will be unruly skies in the Southwest and Northwest. Chilly winter temperatures will be confined to the Northeast.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Bryan Karrick has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.

High pressure is to thank for another day of stellar weather across much of the U.S. Dry weather will be the rule of the game from Sacramento, Calif., to Miami.

Increasing clouds will give way to a few sprinkles in the Rio Grande Valley while snow showers caress the Northern Cascades and Rockies to close out the weekend.

Shoppers may want to wear several layers to keep warm in the interior Northeast where highs will not budge out of the teens and 20s. More tolerable 30s and 40s will stretch across the Northwest and Mountain West and through the Great Lakes, Ohio Valley, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

The Interstate 5 corridor through California into the Southwest and across much of the Plains and Southeast will warm through the 50s and 60s with scattered 70s in the Sunshine State.
