A strong push of cold air will chill the Great Lakes and head for the Northeast today while a few showers pepper the southern California coast. The remainder of the U.S. will enjoy a quiet midweek.

The same cold front swinging through the western Great Lakes Tuesday will sweep into the Northeast today. Cold air will charge in behind the front and move across the warmer lakes to bring mixed rain and snow showers to Michigan`s Upper Peninsula, where a few spots could see a coating of snow early in the day. Ahead of the front, showers will skirt across the interior Northeast in the afternoon.
A slow-moving low pressure that has been sitting off the California Coast will slowly edge closer to southern California. Clouds and scattered sprinkles will spread onto the central and southern coast later in the day. The only other weather hiccup will be scattered afternoon showers in southern Florida.
High pressure will otherwise provide dry weather in the West with a separate high pressure bringing bright, blue skies to the Central U.S., Mid-Atlantic and Southeast.
Heaters will be needed from the Interstate 94 corridor in the Dakotas to the Minnesota Arrowhead and the Upper Michigan Peninsula where temperatures will only rebound into the 30s and 40s. Highs will reach the 50s and 60s in the Northwest and from the Mid-Mississippi Valley to the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast Coast.
The remainder of the U.S. from California to the Southeast Coast will enjoy 70s with warmer 80s and 90s in the Southwest, Rio Grande Valley and through the Sunshine State.
