Today's Weather Outlook

Autumn and winter are mixing across the U.S. today. Cooler temperatures are entrenched across the Eastern U.S., and lake-effect rain and snow showers that pepper the Great Lakes. While the Eastern U.S. is chilly, the Western U.S. will enjoy another dry and warm fall day.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
A cold front that passed through the Eastern U.S. will allow much chillier weather to stay fixed across the Northeast, Ohio Valley, and Mid-Atlantic today. Highs will only rise into the 40s and 50s for Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, New York and Boston.
Winter will feel like it has arrived early in the Great Lakes and Midwest today as the wind flow over the Great Lakes will produce lake-effect rain and snow. The prime candidates for snow will be higher elevations in Michigan and Upstate New York. Under partly to mostly cloudy skies, highs will range from the 30s across the Upper Midwest to the 40s in the Upper Mississippi Valley and Central Great Lakes.
Sunny skies will be the rule for many in the Southeast, Plains, and Mid-Mississippi Valley. Temperatures climb into the 70s and 80s from Atlanta to Dallas, while slightly cooler 50s and 60s will be found from Oklahoma City north toward St. Louis and Kansa City, Mo.
Over the Western U.S., high pressure will continue its domination of the weather pattern and provide comfortable, dry conditions. 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.
