WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Sandy isn`t quite done yet, as it holds on to the Northeast to greet the new month with more unsettled weather. Scattered showers will fall from the mid-Appalachians to Maine, with more wintry weather expected in the highlands of West Virginia and western Maryland. It will still be breezy and chilly along the eastern Great Lakes, while coastal New England holds onto relatively mild weather. Highs will range from the middle and upper 50s from Washington, D.C., to Boston. Temperatures mainly in the 30s and 40s will cover the Appalachians and upstate New York and Pennsylvania.
Milder weather will be found across the South and Southeast, as mostly sunny skies cover the region. The only exception will be the immediate northeast Gulf Coast and northern Florida where a few showers could pass by. Highs will range from the upper 50s in coastal North Carolina to the 60s in Atlanta, and the 70s and 80s from Houston to New Orleans and southward into Florida.
For dry and pleasant weather, head to the Plains and Southwest. Sunshine will cover the region from the Dakotas to Texas. It will still be chilly along the northern tier, but highs will quickly warm into the 60s in the Central Plains, and into the 70s and 80s in the Southern Plains. Heading into the Desert Southwest, expect sunshine and highs in the 80s.
The West will see another storm system bring rain and mountain snow to the region. The Pacific Coast will see showers from Seattle to San Francisco, with highs warming to the 50s and 60s. Showers will fall as far inland as the Intermountain West, with mountain snow expected in the Bitterroots and the Sierra Nevada.
