Rain and snow showers will keep the Great Lakes and Southern Rockies soggy as the work week comes to a close. Typical autumn weather will prevail in the Plains and Mississippi Valley.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Green has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.

The Great Lakes will continue to be the target of lake-effect rain today. Locations along the east side of Lakes Erie and Ontario may even see a few inches of snow this morning, causing roadways and sidewalks to become slushy for commuters. Temperatures will remain chilly, with highs staying in the 40s.

The Southern and Central Rockies will be another contender for a wet start to the weekend as rain and mountain snow dot the landscape. Snow will be confined to the higher elevations of Colorado and New Mexico and will taper off to rain at lower elevations. Highs will be in the 50s and 60s, with cooler temperatures in the 40s on the mountains.

A large high pressure system will dominate the Mississippi Valley, Southeast and Plains, keeping dreary weather at bay for the day. Plenty of sunshine will make for a great autumn day, with temperatures ranging from the 50s and 60s across the Mississippi Valley and Northern and Central Plains, while the Southeast and Southern Plains stay warmer with highs in the 70s and 80s.

The rest of the U.S. will also see open skies and favorable weather to kick off the last day of the work week. Temperatures in the Northeast and Ohio Valley will stay chilly with temperatures in the 40s while the Pacific Northwest and Mountain West see highs in the 60s. The West Coast and Southwest will be the warmest, with the mercury rising into the upper 70s and 80s.
