The last full weekend of October will bring refreshing weather to the majority of the U.S., with only a couple trouble spots in the Great Lakes and Southern Plains.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Green has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
A low pressure system will zip across southern Canada, bringing another round of rain to the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes. Showers will cover most of the Great Lakes and will extend into the Northeast along the Canadian border, accompanied by a few flurries along Lake Ontario. Temperatures will be cool, with 40s across the Great Lakes and Northeast and temperatures dipping down into the 30s and low 40s in the Upper Midwest.
Rain and a thunderstorm or two will shake the Southern Plains this afternoon, possibly putting a damper on any outdoor activities. Temperatures will be comfortable with highs in the 70s and into the 80s in southern Texas.
The rest of the U.S. will have perfect weather to make a trip to the pumpkin patch. Temperatures in the Mid-Atlantic, Mid-Mississippi Valley, Central Plains and Pacific Northwest will be in the 50s, while the Southeast, Lower Mississippi Valley and Mountain West stay slightly warmer in the 60s and 70s. Highs will jump into the 80s and even into the low 90s in the Southwest.
The Great Lakes will be cool and dry on Sunday as low pressure moves northeastward overnight, bringing early-morning showers to the Northeast. Rain will dissipate in the afternoon, opening up to a few rays of sunshine. Temperatures in the Great Lakes and Northeast will be in the 40s while highs in the 50s will be seen along coastal New England.
Showers and mountain snow will stretch across the Canadian border in the Northern Rockies and Northern Plains. Temperatures will stay chilly with highs in the 40s and even dropping into the 30s at higher elevations.
The Southern Plains and Lower Mississippi Valley will see their fair share of rain as showers pepper the landscape from southern Texas to Arkansas. Temperatures will be in the 70s and 80s.
Blue skies will rule over the remainder of the U.S., making for another great day to enjoy autumn activities. Temperatures in the Mid-Atlantic, Pacific Northwest and Central Rockies will be in the 50s and 60s, while the West Coast, Southwest and Southeast stay pleasant with highs in the 70s and 80s.
