By WeatherBug's Luke Paris
Unseasonably cool temperatures, showers and even some light snow will be seen from the Northern Plains and Midwest to the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic while sunshine spreads across the Western U.S.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
A mix of rain and snow will cover the eastern side of the Northern Plains today, possibly creating slick roadways for some morning commuters. Meanwhile, the Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast will stay dreary throughout the day, with periodic showers stretching from Michigan to Virginia and up into New England. Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula will even get a sample of winter as cold temperatures allow for a few snowflakes to fall. Highs will be in the 30s and 40s across much of the Midwest and interior Northeast, while warmer 50s and 60s will be found in the Mid-Atlantic and coastal New England.
A front racing across the Southeast will continue to bring wet weather to Florida. Thunderstorms will keep southern Florida soaked this afternoon, which may put a damper on outdoor plans. Temperatures in Florida will stay warm with highs in the upper 80s, while the rest of the Southeast stay comfortable in the 60s and 70s.
A strong high pressure pattern will continue west of the Rockies and in the Southern Plains, bringing with it enjoyable outdoor weather. The Southwest, West Coast and Southern Plains will be the warmest with temperatures rising into the 70s and upper 80s. Highs in the 60s will be found in the Pacific Northwest, Intermountain West and Central Plains and the Northern Rockies will keep cool and crisp in the 50s.
