Spring has yet to show any signs of its arrival in the East and today will be no exception. Other than the cold weather pattern, only a few rain and snow showers will grip the Northwest.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.
Strong Canadian high pressure will bring quite a chill all the way to the Gulf Coast. Morning temperatures are starting out below freezing as far south as Biloxi, Miss., and Tallahassee, Fla. Temperatures will only rebound into the low 60s across the Deep South, with southern Florida seeing upper 60s.
Weak upper-level low pressure will push a few flurries and sprinkles through the Northeast but no accumulation is expected. Otherwise, the late-March sun will do all it can to warm temperatures up following a chilly start. Afternoon highs will reach the 30s and 40s farther north from the Northern Plains to the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Highs will be in the 50s and low 60s across the rest of the Plains and Mississippi Valley with only southern Texas will enjoy warmer 70s.
A bit of Pacific moisture will scoot into the Northwest. Stretches of Interstate 5 from northern California to Seattle will see a few spits of rain with perhaps a snow shower in the highest Cascade peaks. Otherwise, the Four Corners, Southwest and Rockies will all have blue skies.
The warmest weather in the U.S. will be found west of the Continental Divide with 50s, 60s and 70s warming places like Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles. The typical warmer spots will be the California valleys and Southwest where middle 70s to 80s will allow for outdoor activities.
