Today's Weather Outlook
7:30 AM EST, November 25, 2013

The work week will begin with a few weather headaches across the Deep South and Great Lakes. The first major winter storm of the season will leave a coating of ice across the Southern Plains before bringing rain to large stretches of the Deep South. Not to be outdone, snow will also grace the Great Lakes.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Katie Ferrier has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
The morning commute will be slowed by freezing rain and sleet across central and eastern Texas and across the Mid-South. Dallas, Shreveport, La., and Little Rock, Ark., will have to watch out for slippery roads and sidewalks. Freezing rain will then change to all rain by lunch time.
Otherwise, a plain old-fashioned rain will soak the western Gulf Coast with showers spreading east into Alabama and Florida during the afternoon. Spits of rain will also greet the Sunshine State.
A separate weaker but colder weather system will truck across southern Canada today. Breezy winds and light snow will fly from the Minnesota Arrowhead into Michigan`s Upper Peninsula.
Besides the southern storm and the Great Lakes snow, high pressure will win out in the West and along the East Coast. Phoenix to Seattle, much of the Central and Northern Plains and the East Coast will see sunshine as a result.
Chilly 20s and 30s will have winter coats getting much use from the Dakotas into the Ohio Valley, Mid-Atlantic, and Northeast today. Highs will only top out in the 30s and 40s from Interstate 70 in the central U.S. to the Mid-South and Texas.
Pockets of warmer 50s, 60s, and 70s will be found along the West Coast, southern Arizona and eastern Gulf Coast.
