Today's Weather Outlook

A warm and pleasant fall day will prevail across much of the U.S. today. On the flip side, cooler and wet weather will impact the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Green has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Outdoor plans in the Upper Midwest, Great Lakes, and Northeast will be disrupted as showers soak residents from Wisconsin to Maine. Clouds and rain will keep temperatures from warming too much, with highs in the 40s across the Upper Midwest and temperatures in the 50s in the Great Lakes, Midwest and Northeast.
A low pressure system will move into the northern Plains, bringing a mix of rain and snow to the Dakotas and Minnesota. Snowfall will generally be light and limited to the northern locations of North Dakota and northern Minnesota. Highs will generally be in the 40s and lower 50s.
Spotty showers will intrude upon the Southeast U.S. coast as well. Under partly cloudy skies, temperatures will warm into the 70s and 80s.
Elsewhere, the rest of the U.S. will see crisp fall weather and plentiful sunshine. Highs in the central Plains, central Rockies, Mountain West, Mid-Atlantic and Pacific Northwest will reach the 60s and 70s, while the southern Plains, Southwest and West Coast see highs in the 70s and 80s.
