The coldest air of the season will rush across the Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast today. Lake-effect snow will once again hammer the Great Lakes while sunshine stretches from the Southeast to the Northwest.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in her exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Brutal wind chills reaching minus-15 to minus-45 degrees are greeting residents from the northern Plains to the northern Appalachians today. High temperatures won`t make it out of the single digits below-zero across the eastern Dakotas, much of Minnesota, and northwestern Wisconsin, with single digits and teens settling as far south and east the central Appalachian Spine and interior Northeast.
The Arctic front producing the bone-numbing cold weather will have no mercy on the Interstate 95 corridor either. Locations from Boston to Hartford, Conn., will stay in the upper teens with 20s as far south as Richmond, Va. In addition to the chill, a few snowflakes will fly, but additional accumulations aren`t expected along Interstate 95 from Providence, R.I., to Portland, Maine.
Snow showers will also zip across the Great Lakes and reduce visibility in the gusty winds. Several inches will make roads icy and snow-packed from Marquette, Mich., to Syracuse, N.Y.
Aside from a stray afternoon shower in southern Florida and a few showers approaching the Northwest Coast after sunset, high pressure will produce blue skies from California to Georgia.
The Intermountain West will see highs in the 30s and 40s with 50s, 60s and 70s stretching along Interstate 5 to the Southwest and across the southern tier through Florida.
