The big weather story to close out the weekend will be the push of snow through the Upper Mississippi Valley and western Great Lakes. Meanwhile, showers and possible strong storms will overspread the Mid-South to Ohio Valley.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Green has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
As a winter storm pushes across the Northern Tier, several inches of snow will accumulate in places like Minneapolis, Duluth, and International Falls, Minn. Gusty winds will accompany the snow, leading to treacherous travel from the eastern Dakotas and northern Minnesota. Another area of wintery weather will move south through the Rockies and Wasatch into the Four Corners region.
Farther south and east, showers and possibly severe storms will move through during the afternoon from the lower Mississippi Valley to the eastern Great Lakes. Some storms could contain large hail, damaging winds, and even isolated tornadoes from eastern Texas to western Tennessee. The chance for thunderstorms will slide northeastward during the day into the Tennessee and Ohio valleys.
In the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, showers will move in during the day brining rain chances from the Carolinas to southern New England by evening. A few rain and snow showers will also greet the Northwest, while California and the extreme Southwest stay dry.
Highs will range from the teens along the Northern Tier from Montana into the Dakotas, with 20s, 30s and 40s from the Northwest into the Rockies, and eastward to the Upper Great Lakes. Milder 50s, 60s and 70s will stretch across the southern tier of the U.S., from California to the Carolinas.
