The start of the new workweek is a bit unsettled from the Midwest to the Gulf Coast, while another storm blows into the Northwest. Dry and warm weather will spread through the Southwest and along the East Coast.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
A cold front moving through the Mississippi Valley is drawing Gulf moisture northward into the Tennessee and Ohio valleys. This is firing off showers and even a few thunderstorms. Highs will be on the mild side later today, reaching the 50s from Louisiana to Ohio.
The back side of this storm is drawing in plenty of cold air, causing snow to fly from Missouri to Wisconsin. Snow will taper to flurries by afternoon, with an additional 1 or 2 inches of fresh powder. Meanwhile, sunshine will return to the northern Plains, although there will be a noticeable chill in the air, with highs only in the 20s and 30s behind the front.
Another storm moving into the Northwest will bring rain and mountain snow from Washington and Oregon into the northern Rockies. Rain will be heaviest along the coast, with limited accumulations over the passes. Clouds will hamper the temperatures, with highs only in the 30s and 40s.
Residents of the East Coast will enjoy one more day of mild weather and sunny skies. Highs will top out in the 50s as far north as New England, with 60s into the Mid-Atlantic. 70s and even a few 80s will be found in the Southeast and Florida.
Similarly, mild and sunny weather is expected in the Southwest today. High pressure will cause temperatures to jump into the 70s as far north as San Francisco, with mild readings into Phoenix and Denver.
