Today's Weather Outlook
8:45 AM EST, November 5, 2012
By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Fred Allen
A few big changes will occur across the U.S. today, including low pressure carrying chilly rain from the Mid-Mississippi Valley, and thunderstorms on the Gulf Coast. Other changes will be seen across the Northwest and Southeast, while many of the same "quiet weekend" locations will continue those conditions to start the new workweek.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Bryan Karrick has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
The lone weather-producer today will slide across the Missouri Valley, triggering a quick-hitting chilly rainfall from Iowa into the Interstate 10 corridor along the southeastern Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast. Though it won`t be a washout, wipers, umbrellas and rain gear along with winter jackets will be a requirement. Even a few snowflakes could fly in the northern Missouri Valley and southern Iowa, but no accumulation is expected.
The soggy and storm-packed first weekend of November will turn decidedly drier and more comfortable for those across the Pacific Northwest and Southeast Atlantic Coast. Any nuisance showers leftover early today will fade quickly, leaving residents with breaks of blue sky by early afternoon.
Just like the weekend, the California Pacific beaches all the way to the High Plains, Great Lakes and Ohio Valley into New England will see more tranquil weather to open up the workweek.
There will be a few subtle differences, at least temperature-wise across the U.S. The first of which will be from the Texas Gulf Coast to the Carolinas, where temperatures will be held back a few pegs, climbing to the 60s and 70s mostly; a few lower 80s will pop-up across south Florida and Texas. Status quo 60s, 70s and 80s will dominate much of the West, except 50s will spread across the highest terrain of the Rockies Front Range.
Those with little change include the northern and central High Plains to the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, where peaks of sunshine won`t be enough to push temperatures through 30s, 40s and very low 50s.
