Two storms, an East Coast winter storm and a new one coming off the Pacific will bookend the U.S. weather today. In between, unseasonably cool but sunny weather will continue.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.

A winter storm jumping onto the East Coast will spread snow from the Ohio Valley and eastern Plains to the Mid-Atlantic coast. The snow will end by midday across the eastern Plains, while the central Appalachians and the Mid-Atlantic, including the I-95 corridor from Richmond, Va., to Philadelphia, gets socked with heavy snow all day. Coastal Delmarva and the Virginia Tidewater will see a wintry mix change to rain as temperatures jump above freezing there. New England will see increasing clouds and some snow flurries as temperatures stay in the 30s all day.

The Midwest, western Great Lakes and northern Plains will see skies clear after the early week snow storm. However, even with the early March sunshine, temperatures will only be in the low 20s across the northern Plains and extreme upper Midwest, with the rest of the central and northern Plains and the western Great Lakes seeing temperatures in the low 30s. The rest of the Plains, South, and Southeast will be unseasonably chilly with temperatures in the 40s and 50s common, with the northern halves of Texas and Florida seeing 60s. Southern Texas and Florida will enjoy warmer low 70s.

The other big weather story will be a new Pacific storm coming ashore on the West Coast. Heavy rain will fall from the central California coast northward to Seattle, with mountain snow falling over the highest mountains of the Sierras and Cascades. San Francisco, Portland, Ore., and Seattle will have a rainy day. The rain will keep temperatures in the 40s across the Northwest, with 50s and 60s across California.

The Southwest, Rockies and Great Basin will be sunny with highs ranging from 40s in the Great Basin to 70s in the Southwest. In between it will be in the 50s and 60s.
