Today's Weather Outlook
8 AM EST, November 27, 2012
UPDATED By WeatherBug Sr. Meteorologist, James West
Just as the work week kicks back into high gear, Mother Nature is following suit with a bit of wintry weather this morning for the northern Appalachians and the Mid-Atlantic. Rain and a few storms will roam the Deep South and Lower Mississippi Valley while the Plains and Western U.S. remain unscathed from stormy skies.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Although more of a nuisance than anything else, this morning`s snow hitting the northern Appalachians and rain soaking the Mid-Atlantic will cause a few small delays on the way to work and school this morning. One to three inches of snow will brush south-central and central Pennsylvania including a stretch of Interstate 81 in western Maryland and south-central Pennsylvania.
Farther south, the Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia metro areas will have a few snowflakes mixed in with the morning rain.
Windshield wipers will also need to be in working order from the Lower Mississippi Valley to the Southeast. Rain will end by midday for places like New Orleans and Shreveport, La., with mainly late-morning to mid-afternoon showers and storms in Birmingham, Ala., and Atlanta. Totals will generally be less than one inch.
The only other weather hiccups other than the East will be a few snow showers sneaking across Minnesota`s Arrowhead and the far northern Great Lakes and dense morning fog in California`s San Joaquin Valley. A sprawling upper-level ridge will keep the West Coast dry and warm while another high pressure will center itself across the Plains, keeping clouds at bay in the Central U.S.
Temperatures will only rebound into the 30s and 40s from the northern Cascades into the Great Lakes and south across the Interstate 70 corridor in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic. Much of the West Coast, Great Basin, southern Rockies, central and southern Plains and Deep South will warm into the 50s, 60s and 70s today.
