Today's Weather Outlook
8:45 AM EDT, October 8, 2013
By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Chad Merrill
A quiet autumn pattern will be found across much of the U.S. today, with the only trouble spots in the eastern Carolinas and Northwest.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
The remnant moisture associated with Karen will get hung up along a cold front slowly easing off the coast of the Carolinas today. The end result will be a dreary and rainy day from the Piedmont to the coast but the moisture is needed to help ease recent mounting precipitation deficits. Rain will be more scattered further to the southwest into southern Georgia and Alabama through Florida.
A stormy pattern will continue in the Northwest for the second day of the work week. Umbrellas will be needed in western Washington and Oregon while snow showers spread through the Cascades. Any snow accumulation will be an inch or less, so travel even through the high mountain passes shouldn`t be a problem.
Warm southwest winds and sunshine will bring temperatures into the 70s from the Texas and Oklahoma Red River Valley all the way to the Minnesota Arrowhead.
The Northwest will hover in the 50s with 30s and lower 40s along the crest of the Cascades and northern Rockies. The Great Basin, Central Rockies and Northern Plains will warm into the 60s as will large stretches of real estate from the Great Lakes to the East Coast.
