Today's Weather Outlook
UPDATED 8:45 AM EST, January 28, 2013
UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Chad Merrill and James West
Winter will return in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast to kick off the new work week, while more snow plagues the Mountain West and Northwest. Only the Deep South will escape the cold and icy mess.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
The same storm system responsible for ice and a fresh accumulating snow across the Midwest Sunday is the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast`s concern today. The Interstate 81 and I-95 corridor from Washington to Philadelphia will be slick in a few spots as a mixture of sleet and freezing rain quickly zips through this morning.
Between midday and late-afternoon, the bulk of the snow, sleet and freezing rain will move north of the Mason-Dixon Line. This will mean a slippery evening commute along the Interstate 95 corridor from Philadelphia to Boston.
Not to be outdone, two fresh storms will bring more snow to the Mountain West and Northwest. The Cascades, Central Rockies and Wasatch could end up with 1 to 2 feet of new snow before the day is finished. Instead of snow shovels, umbrellas will be needed along Interstate 5 in the Northwest with a cold rain in the forecast.
Morning showers will give way to gradual clearing skies in the Southwest while the Deep South enjoys partly cloudy skies.
Temperatures will be 10 degrees above average in south Texas with lower 80s. Meanwhile, highs will push into the 70s for the remainder of the Southern Plains, Lower Mississippi Valley and Southeast.
Much of the West except for the California valleys and coastline will see 30s and 40s. Readings will also be in the 30s and 40s from the Northern Plains to the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.
