High pressure sprawling over the Midwest will bring mainly pleasant conditions to a large chunk of the nation today. Despite this, a March wintry mix will still be in the cards for parts for the West and Northeast.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.
Areas of light showers and higher elevation snow will still cover much of the Northwest but at least temperatures will be mild. Showers will be a good bet in both Seattle and Portland, while a wintry mix and mountain snow will fall in the northern and central Rockies. Highs will warm into the 50s and 60s in many of the major western cities like Boise, Idaho, Salt Lake City and Denver.
In the East, a scattered wintry mix will fall along the eastern Great Lakes, as well as from the mid-Appalachian spine to New England. Temperatures will generally run in the 30s and 40s from Pittsburgh, to Albany, N.Y., and Boston. Slightly milder air in the 50s will bring some shower chances to New York City. Heading southward, temperatures will remain generally in the 50s from the Mid-Atlantic to the Southeast, and will warm quickly into the 70s in Florida under partly cloudy skies.
In the nation`s midsection, temperatures will run the gamut. The Dakotas will be mostly sunny with highs in the 30s and 40s. The central Plains will see highs in the 50s and 60s, as the southern Plains see a few passing showers, with highs in the 60s and 70s.
In the West, coastal California will generally see highs in the 60s, with some sprinkles possible in San Francisco. Under mostly sunny skies, temperatures will generally hit the 70s and 80s farther inland and in the Desert Southwest.
