February still has a few tricks up its sleeve across the Midwest, Great Lakes and Northeast even as the month heads toward its conclusion. Calm lingers across the nation`s western half.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
The winter storm that dumped a foot of snow on parts of the Plains and Midwest Tuesday will continue to cause trouble today. Lingering snow will continue across the Midwest through the afternoon. Meanwhile, the heavy, wet snow will push across the northern Appalachians and interior New England throughout the day, and up to foot of new snow is possible across the Green and White Mountains and interior Maine. Temperatures will be in the low 30s here.
South of the snow across the upper Ohio Valley, Appalachian foothills and southern New England, a wintry mix of snow and sleet will change to rain as temperatures rise above freezing later this morning. The Mid-Atlantic will also see the cold rain as the temperatures rise in the low to mid-40s. Finally, the tail-end of the storm system will bring southern Florida some showers this afternoon. A rumble of thunder will accompany the heaviest rain showers. Temperatures across the Sunshine State will still be in the 70s.
The rest of the U.S. will have a quiet but chilly middle of the week. Abundant sunshine will push temperatures into the 50s and 60s across the Southeast, South and Texas, while colder 30s and low 40s will be found from the Rockies and eastern Great Basin eastward across the Rockies into the central and northern Plains, Midwest and western Great Lakes. A few spots across the central Rockies will see highs in the mid-20s.
The West Coast will continue to have a quiet last week of February. High temperatures will range from the low 70s across southern California to the upper 40s and 50s in the Northwest. The Southwest will remain slightly cooler than normal with highs in the upper 40s to low 60s across desert regions.
