Today's Weather Outlook

The strong storm system that pounded the Northern Plains and Rockies with rain, snow, and wind will leave in its wake some drier air for the Western U.S. However, the Ohio Valley and Northeast won`t be as fortunate as this same storm will move east, bringing rain with it.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
A cold front associated with a potent low moving northeastward into the Great Lakes will be responsible for rainy weather today. Scattered showers and storms will ride along the front and soak locations from the Southern Plains into the Ohio Valley. Ahead of the front, highs will touch the 70s in the Ohio and Tennessee valleys, while temperatures in the 50s and 60s will be seen behind the front across the Northern and Central Plains.
High pressure will begin to weaken across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic today. A cold front will approach from the west, bringing showers to places such as Roanoke, Va., Philadelphia, and New York City later this afternoon and this evening. Highs will still reach the 60s and 70s under mostly cloudy skies.
Elsewhere, a fine day is in the making for the California coast as sunny skies boost highs into the 70s and 80s. A few rain showers are possible across the Northern Rockies with highs in the 40s and 50s. Farther south, the Intermountain West will begin to dry out but remain cool with highs in 50s. In the Southwest, temperatures will surge into the 70s and 80s from Phoenix to Las Vegas, while warm 80s and sunny skies prevail in the Southeast.
