An Arctic invasion will bring a brutally cold end to the weekend for the East, while a developing winter storm wallops the southern Plains with snow and ice. Meanwhile, the Southwest will finally get a chance to dry out from recent record rain.

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

A strong cold front will send the season`s coldest air into the East today. Highs will struggle to reach the freezing mark along the Interstate-95 corridor from Washington, D.C., to Boston. Interior New England will have chilly teens with widespread 20s as far south as western North Carolina.

The cold blast will extend into the Great Lakes as well as the Mississippi and Ohio valleys. Highs in places like International Falls, Minn., St. Louis, Cincinnati, and Marquette, Mich., will top out in the 20s.

The same low pressure that brought record rain to Phoenix on Friday will ease into the southern Plains today. The same Arctic high chilling the East will send enough cold air across the Red River Valley in Oklahoma and Texas to bring a wintry mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain. Oklahoma City and Dallas could see treacherous travel and scattered power outages from the weight of the ice on power lines.

Rain and mountain snow in the Southwest and Rockies will come to an end today, while high pressure brings dry weather from the West Coast into the northern Rockies and Plains.

Sunshine will also be abundant in the Deep South with southern Florida being the only hiccup. Here, a few showers will briefly dampen the pavement today.

Chilly 30s will be found as far south as Texas`s Big Bend while much of the Great Basin and Mountain West see similar readings. The West Coast will warm into the 50s and 60s under sunshine with pockets of 50s in the northern Front Range and Dakotas. The warmest readings today will be in Florida, where highs will top out in the upper 70s from Tampa to Miami.
