Today's Weather Outlook

The Northern Plains to the Upper Ohio Valley will see a precursor of winter to kick off the new workweek as a cold front plows southward from Canada. Elsewhere, a few showers will pelt Florida while late-day rain invades the Northwest.

A cold front, with its origins in Arctic Canada, will waste no time slicing into the Ohio Valley today. A few snow squalls will accompany the front as it moves from the Upper Midwest this morning to the Ohio Valley by nightfall. Any accumulation will be light but could make for a slower afternoon commute in places like Chicago, Detroit, and Cleveland.
Gusty northwest winds and chilly temperatures in the teens will grip the northern tier from the Northern Plains to the Minnesota Arrowhead, with 20s south of Interstate 94 to just north of Interstate-80 in the central U.S. Ahead of the front, temperatures will warm into the 50s and lower 60s through the Mid-Mississippi and Tennessee valleys, Mid-Atlantic, and Northeast.
A pesky east wind will produce spits of rain across central and southern Florida, while the Northwest will be greeted to late-day rain as a low pressure system edges closer to the coast. Otherwise, the remainder of the West, Plains, and Deep South will enjoy plenty of blue skies.
While the Northern Plains get submerged into a winter`s chill, the southern tier will bask in warmer 70s and 80s. In between, much of the Interstate 70 corridor from the Plains to the Mountain West will see pleasant 50s and 60s.
The only other cool spots will be the Cascades and Interior Northeast where highs will only be in the 30s and 40s.
