Today's Weather Outlook

Umbrellas and windshield wipers will be in high demand in the East to kick off the work week. Spring will hide behind closed doors in the Northwest and Northern Rockies as a cold front swoops down fresh Canadian air. Meanwhile, much of the Central and Western U.S. will enjoy sunshine and warmth.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Susie Martin has the latest in her exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
The new work week will begin with soggy weather along the East Coast. A few downpours and thunderstorms are possible but no real flash flood or severe threat will come with this fresh round of rain. Even outdoor plans in the Sunshine State will be squashed due to showers and storms.
A fresh cold front will plow into the Northwest and Northern Rockies today. While a few snow showers will crest the mountains, the big story will be the gusty winds along the front. Driving along Interstates 15 and 90 from Washington to Montana will be difficult with gusts approaching 70 mph.
A separate weak disturbance will slide across the Upper Mississippi Valley into the western Great Lakes bringing a few showers and even the potential for hail-producing thunderstorms while a few storms roam the Rio Grande Valley. Otherwise, the West Coast to the Tennessee Valley will enjoy a quiet day with blue skies.
The cold front will keep highs in the 30s and 40s along and north of Interstate 90 in the Northwest. Otherwise, 50s, 60s and 70s will take up much real estate from the Great Basin to the Northeast. The warmer spots will be the San Joaquin and Sacramento valleys, the Southwest, Southern Plains and Deep South where 80s and 90s will be common.
