Today's Weather Outlook
UPDATED 9 AM EST, November 10, 2013
UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Fred Allen
Residents across the U.S. Northern-Tier will need to dust off the umbrellas and shovels to close out the weekend. On the other hand, the rest of the country will enjoy a relatively quiet weather day, except in southern Florida, where showers will dampen the mood a bit.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Bryan Karrick has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
A pair of storm systems will streak along the U.S. and Canada border today, ultimately producing bursts of rain, showers, and even accumulating wet snow across northern and central Maine. Cities such as Caribou and Houlton, Maine, could be shoveling out of 2 to 5 inches of new snow, while rain will throw a wrench into outdoor plans from southern New England into the Great Lakes and Upper Midwest.
Even Montana and the northern Idaho Panhandle will experience their own fresh blanket of snowfall to close out the weekend. Several slushy inches will fall in the valleys, while up to a foot could greet residents across the Tetons. If travelling, make sure to check about chain requirements, as well as allow extra time between you and the next motorist to reach your travel destination safely. Meanwhile, in the lower elevations, it will be chilly autumn showers that will fall from the Northwest into Montana.
The other weather hiccup across an otherwise tranquil day across the U.S. will be found in south Florida. Here, showers will roll across the Sunshine State, but won`t be enough to ruin any outdoor activities.
Temperatures will be fairly typical for mid-November across the U.S. The coldest, and unseasonably so, will be found from Montana to northern Michigan, as well as in New England. Here, the mercury will range from the falling 20s and 30s in the Central U.S., to the 30s, 40s, and very low 50s from Maine to Boston and New York City today.
In opposite fashion, it will be quite comfortable from the Golden State to the Carolinas, where 60s, 70s, and 80s will be the rule rather than the exception. In between, it will be typical 50s and 60s blanketing the Northwest to the Mid-Atlantic, excluding a few 40s in the Rocky Mountain Front Range.
