The end of the work week and the start of the extended Presidents` Day weekend will be a generally quiet one, even though some snow and a fresh burst of arctic temperatures settles across the Midwest and Northeast.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Green has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.

Arctic air returning to the Northern Plains, Upper Midwest and western Great Lakes will spread south behind a cold front that will make its way into the Northeast and Appalachians today. Temperatures will only be in the single digits throughout the eastern Dakotas and Upper Midwest, with teens and 20s found across the upper Mississippi Valley and western Great Lakes.

Ahead of the Arctic air and along the cold front, pockets of quick-hitting snow will speed across the Great Lakes, Ohio Valley and central Plains. Only an inch or two will be likely from this mid-February nuisance as temperatures stay around the freezing mark. Ahead of the front, the central Plains eastward across the central Mississippi and lower Tennessee valleys and into the Mid-Atlantic will see increasing clouds all day while temperatures eke into the lower to mid-40s.

The southern tier of the U.S. from Texas and Oklahoma eastward into the Southeast and Carolinas will see temperatures in the 50s and 60s, with southern Texas seeing low to mid-70s. Florida will see showers and late-day thunderstorms as a lingering front sits atop the Sunshine State.

Aside from some light snow in the central and northern Rockies, the West will have quiet weather. It will be mostly sunny throughout the Great Basin, Southwest, California and the entire Pacific Northwest.

Temperatures across the West will range from the low to mid-70s across southern California and the Southwest with the rest of the Golden State being in the 60s. The Coastal Northwest will be in the 50s today, with interior locations of the Northwest, Mountains West and Great Basin seeing highs in the 40s, with higher elevations locations being in the 30s.
