Winter refuses to give up for the second day of the work week east of the Mississippi River. Meanwhile, spring warmth will spread across the Southwest.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.
Although Mid-Atlantic residents won`t have to deal with snow-covered roads, the cold weather will swoop in behind Monday`s storm system. Highs will only reach the 30s and 40s along and west of Interstate 81 with highs near 50 degrees for the major Interstate 95 cities from Atlanta to Boston. Even Miami will be 10 degrees cooler than average with highs only climbing into the lower 70s.
A few flurries and snow showers will sweep across the northern Appalachians, eastern Ohio Valley and Great Lakes but accumulation will be less than an inch.
Cold high pressure will bring below-average temperatures to the Central U.S. Although sunshine will fill the sky from Bismarck, N.D., to Houston, temperatures will feel anything but spring-like. Cold 20s will embrace the Northern Plains with 30s and 40s as far south as Interstate 70.
Much of the Southern Plains will only see highs in the 50s and 60s. Even Brownsville, Texas, will feel the chill with highs near 70 degrees compared to average late-March temperatures around 80 degrees.
The West will see a quiet weather pattern. The only hiccups will be northern California into the northern Rockies where a few spits of rain and snow will require windshield wipers to be on intermittent speed.
Highs will climb into the 50s, 60s and 70s along the West Coast with warmer 80s in southern California and Arizona. Only the Cascades, Sierra and Rockies will stay in the 30s and 40s.
