Today's Weather Outlook

Both winter and spring will be found across the U.S. today as the transition of the seasons continues. This will include everything from snow and sleet to near-record seasonal warmth.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
An Alberta clipper streaking out of Canada will bring a quick burst of snow across the Upper Midwest this morning and will zip southeast across the lower Ohio and Tennessee valleys and southern Appalachians this evening and tonight. Temperatures in the upper 30s and low 40s will mean a wintry mix will be found here. Morning snow will also be found across northern New England early in the day as another weak winter system moves through and temperatures hover in the mid-20 there. Again, accumulation will be minimal.
Even though there won`t be snow, the Upper Midwest, Great Lakes, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, will still feel like winter. Temperatures will barely reach the freezing mark across the Great Lakes, with the Northeast, Appalachians, and the Mid-Atlantic seeing highs in the 40s. At least the sky will see plenty of March sunshine.
The South, Southeast, Central Plains, Rockies, Great Basin, Desert Southwest and southern California will feel like spring. Plenty of sunshine will push temperatures into the 80s and 90s across the Southwest, southern California and extreme southern Texas. A few places in the Desert Southwest will push record highs for the day. The rest of California, Southwest, Great Basin, Sierra and southern Plains and Florida will be in the 70s with a scattering of 80s. Even the western and central Plains, Southeast, and all of the Rockies will be in the 50s and 60s.
The Northwest will have prototypical March weather, with showers extending from the Pacific Coast eastward into the northern Mountain West. Highs will be in the 40s and 50s.
