The Plains will slowly dry out from the early week soaking while the same weather system sweeps into the Great Lakes, Midwest and Mid-South. Meanwhile, both the West and East will enjoy plentiful sunshine.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.

Residents in the Dakotas will wake up to a brief glimpse of winter with snow mixed with rain and gusty northerly winds. The potent mid-October low pressure and cold front triggering the wintery mix will quickly slide into the Great Lakes, ending the stormy skies in the Northern Plains. The Minnesota Arrowhead to southern Texas won`t be as lucky with intermittent showers throughout the day and a few embedded storms.

The front will draw in cooler, drier air to much of the Central Plains, ending the severe weather and heavy rain threat from Monday.

Other than the cold front sliding into the Midwest and Mid-South, high pressure will win out for the West and East coasts. This will spell pleasant fall weather with sunshine and light wind. Low clouds will break for increasing sunshine in the eastern Carolinas and northern Florida.

The northern Rockies will get a chance to dig out of the snow that fell on Monday, but will have to bundle up before heading outside with highs in the 30s. Otherwise, seasonal temperatures will greet the West and Central U.S. with 50s and 60s. The Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys will warm into the 70s and 80s with a few more 80-degree readings from Phoenix to the southern Arizona border.

Ahead of the Midwest front, highs will push into the 70s from southern New England to the Deep South with warm 80s from the Gulf Coast deep into southern Florida.
