A large and complex storm system will bring everything from snow and rain to thunderstorms from the Pacific Northwest to the Southeast today.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Green has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.
A late-season winter storm will continue its trek southward, allowing more chilly air to slide into the nation`s midsection. Scattered snow showers and mountain snow will fall from the northern Rockies all the way to the central Plains, with some sleet and rain mixing in as far south as the Southeast during the morning rush.
Temperatures will vary dramatically across the board; from the 20s and 30s in the Northern Tier to the 30s and 40 in the central Plains. Farther south, highs in the 50s and 60s will be the rule from Oklahoma City to the Tennessee Valley, but morning lows could bring a wintry mix to places like Nashville, Tenn., and Atlanta. In the southern Plains, temperatures will generally warm to the 60s, while the Gulf Coast approaches the 70s.
Along the Eastern Seaboard, some snow and rain will fall in coastal New England. Lake-effect snow will fall across the eastern Great Lakes and the central Appalachians. Temperatures will generally range from the 30s to 40s from Boston to Buffalo and south to Baltimore. The warmest weather will be across the Southeast, although highs will only warm to the 50s in Georgia and the Carolinas. Florida will be mostly sunny with highs in the 70s.
In the West, scattered showers will fall up across the coastal Northwest while snow showers and a wintery mix fall farther inland. Temperatures will rise to the 40s in Seattle and Portland, with highs in the 60s and 70s along coastal California. Under mostly sunny skies, temperatures will generally hit the 70s and 80s farther inland and in the Desert Southwest.
