Today's Weather Outlook
UPDATED 8 AM EST, December 11, 2012
UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Chad Merrill
The storm system that brought a bit of soggy and stormy weather to the East to kick off the work week will exit off the coast, bringing a return to sunshine today. A few leftover showers will pelt the Gulf Coast while stronger storms roam south Florida. Meanwhile, a fresh storm will bring more coastal rain and mountain snow to the Northwest.

While high pressure brings back sunshine to the East today, the same can`t be said for the Gulf Coast. The southern flank of a cold front will stall here, bringing scattered showers from New Orleans to Miami. A few storms capable of damaging winds and hail could slide across central Florida, bringing outdoor activities inside in Tampa and Orlando.
Low pressure sliding through British Columbia will spread Pacific moisture into the Northwest today. Windshield wipers will get a good workout along Interstate 5 in Washington and Oregon while light snow brushes the Cascades. Snowfall accumulations are expected to be less than 5 inches.
Other than a few snow flurries scraping the Upper Great Lakes and Rockies, large stretches of the West and Plains will enjoy sunny skies.
Teens and 20s will chill the far northern Plains and northern Minnesota while much of the Interstate 70 corridor remains in the 30s and 40s. The Great Basin, California, the Southwest, southern Plains and Southeast will enjoy warmer 50s, 60s and 70s. Southern Florida will reach into the lower 80s.
