Winter won`t let up across the Great Lakes today as another weak low pressure brings fresh snow. A few showers will soak the Gulf Coast while rain and mountain snow push into the Northwest.

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

For many in the Great Lakes, today will be the sixth day in a row with measurable snow. Following on the heels of Monday`s Alberta Clipper, a second low pressure will bring a general swath of 1 to 2 inches. Places like Detroit and Green Bay, Wis., will have to brush away the snow from cars, sidewalks and driveways again.

A few more snow showers will crest the northern Appalachians, adding onto the several inches of accumulation from Monday`s storm.

While much of the Deep South enjoys a dry day, a rain coat or umbrella will be needed along the central Gulf Coast. Showers will pelt places like Mobile, Ala., and New Orleans. Meanwhile, low pressure will bring rain to the Northwest Coast and snow for the northern Cascades. Accumulations will be light with 2 to 4 inches falling along Interstate 90 east of Seattle in the highest passes.

Otherwise, sunshine will beam down on the remainder of the West, Plains, Mississippi Valley and East.

Northern New England will stay in the single digits but wind chills will make it feel like minus-20 to minus-30 degrees. Teens will grip northern North Dakota and the remainder of the Northeast with typical 20s, 30s and 40s in the Northwest, Mountain West and from the Northern Plains to the Mid-Atlantic.

Much of California into the Southwest, Central and Southern Plains and Deep South won`t need to bundle up with highs in the 50s, 60s and 70s. Just like Monday, a few 80s will warm south Texas after patchy morning fog lifts.
