The quiet weather pattern from the weekend will carry over to the new work week in the West while cold air zips south from the northern Plains into the Great Lakes. High pressure will bring warm and dry weather to the West while a low pressure swoops through the Great Lakes, ushering in a true autumn air mass.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Classic autumn weather will be in store for the Great Lakes today. A low pressure system will move quickly through, transporting rain and snow showers and much cooler air in behind it. Under mostly cloudy skies, highs will only reach the 40s and 50s across places such as Chicago, Detroit, and Green Bay, Wis.
Farther south across the southern Plains, a low pressure system will develop along a stalled-out front, spreading showers to Brownsville, Texas, Houston, and Dallas. A few spotty showers will also be possible in the southern Plains to the Deep South. Temperatures will warm into the 70s and 80s in the Deep South while cooler 50s and 60s will prevail from the Plains to the Mid-Mississippi Valley.
The rest of U.S. will enjoy plentiful sunshine as high pressure will be control. Highs in the 50s and 60s will occur in the Northeast and slightly warmer 60s and 70s are expected from the Mid-Atlantic to the Tennessee Valley. In the Pacific Northwest, temperatures will reach the 60s and 70s while farther south along the California Coast, highs will surge into the 70s and 80s. Warm 70s and 80s will be found across the Southwest.
