By WeatherBug Meteorologist, John Bateman
The potent storm system dumping heavy rain and mountain snow in the West will continue unabated today with howling winds adding misery to the mix. The nicest weather will stay in the South and East, with sunshine and mild temperatures.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Bryan Karrick has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
The weather spotlight once again is the West as the workweek ends. Downpours of rain and hefty mountain snow will continue their onslaught along the Pacific Coast and Intermountain West. Along with flooding and mudslides, damaging wind gusts will continue for another day, especially in the higher elevations. Temperatures will generally hit the 40s and 50s in the lower elevations of the Pacific Northwest and Great Basin, with 30s and 20s in the mountains. A rainy coastal California will warm to the middle 60s from San Francisco to Los Angeles, while a dry Desert Southwest hits the upper 60s to upper 70s.
Another area of unsettled weather will be found in the Northern Tier states and the Great Lakes. Cities like Minneapolis, Milwaukee, and Detroit northward to the Canadian border will see a mixture of generally light snow, sleet, and rain as temperatures hover in the 30s and 40s.
Elsewhere, other than a few isolated showers along the Gulf Coast and southern Florida, the rest of the U.S. should be dry, with sunshine. The Northeast will be partly sunny and cool with highs in the 20s and 30s in New England. The Mid-Atlantic will warm into the 40s and 50s under mostly sunny skies, as the Southeast hits the 60s from the Carolinas to Georgia.
The pick, weather-wise, will be the central and southern Plains, with highs in the 60s and 70s from Wichita, Kan., to San Antonio, Texas. Even Denver will flirt with highs around 60 degrees under partly sunny skies.
