Although not as intense as recent West Coast storms, another batch of moisture will stream into the Pacific Northwest with rain and mountain snow. Showers and a few storms will plague the Gulf Coast, while most of the rest of the U.S. enjoys tranquil and warm weather.

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

Residents in the Pacific Northwest and northern Rockies have certainly had their share of bad weather over the past couple of weeks, and this will continue today. The good news is the storm will be far less intense than its predecessors. Showers will engulf Seattle and Portland, Ore., while cold air at higher elevations will support mountain snow across the Cascades, northern and central Rockies, and Wasatch.

On the other side of the U.S., an upper-level disturbance crawling across the Gulf of Mexico will produce scattered showers from New Orleans to southern Georgia. A few thunderstorms will even erupt across the Florida peninsula.

The only other minor weather hiccup will occur in the Upper Midwest, as a weak cold front could produce very light snowfall across northern Wisconsin and Michigan`s Upper Peninsula. Elsewhere, high pressure will deliver plentiful sunshine to the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, while quiet and warm weather takes hold from the Southern Plains to the California coast.

The coolest temperatures today will be found across the north, with 30s from northern New England to the northern Rockies. Widespread 40s and 50s will dominate from the Mid-Atlantic to Central Plains and Oregon coast. These values will be 10-to-20 degrees above average in many places. Meanwhile, pleasant 60s and 70s will be entrenched across the south from the Gulf Coast westward to southern California.
