A long, potent cold front is sinking southeastward across the U.S., and it will spark some powerful storms across the South. Behind it, dry, Canadian air will funnel into the Northern Tier and Great Lakes bringing a chilly start to the new workweek.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.

The spotlight for today`s weather will be on the Plains and the Lower Mississippi Valley. A cold air mass will help support some scattered snow showers in the eastern High Plains and the Central Plains, mainly this morning. To the south, warm, moist unstable air combined with potent winds will bring a threat for severe storms from eastern Texas to the Mississippi River. The main threat will be from large hail and damaging winds.

Temperatures will vary dramatically from north to south. The Dakotas and Minnesota will only see highs in the teens and 20s, while the Central Plains hit the 30s and 40s. Milder air will cover the Southern Plains, with Dallas and Houston warming to the 70s and 80s respectively.

On both sides of the U.S., the weather will be rather uneventful. With the exception of some lake-effect snow showers across Michigan`s Upper Peninsula and some light snow in northern New England, much of the rest of the U.S. will be dry. The Northeast will see mostly sunny skies with highs in the 40s. Temperatures will warm into the 50s and 60s heading through the Mid-Atlantic and Carolinas. As usual, Florida will be the eastern warm spot with highs in the upper 70s in most locales.

Heading west, after some morning fog up and down the Pacific Coast, most big cities will break into afternoon sunshine. Highs will hit the upper 40s in the Pacific Northwest while coastal California warms into the 60s. The Desert Southwest will be dry and sunny with highs in the 70s.
