A concoction of weather will bring troubles to the Eastern U.S. as a system moves across the Northeast today. The Central and Western U.S. will see another day of sunny skies accompanied with brisk temperatures.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
Downpours will soak residents of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic as a strong low pressure continues to push to the north. Holiday travelers will have a rough commute, battling slick and congested roadways across much of the Eastern U.S. The impending deluge could cause localized flooding across much of New England and locations east of the Appalachians. Meanwhile, rain will taper off to an icy mix along the Appalachian spine from upstate New York to North Carolina. To the west of the Appalachians, fresh snowfall will be in abundance in the Great Lakes, Ohio Valley and Tennessee Valley. Temperatures in the Midwest and Great Lakes will stay quite chilly in the 20s, rising into the 30s across the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys. The Mid-Atlantic and Northeast will be in the 40s while coastal New England warms up to the 50s.
The Southeast will be the other contender for wet weather today as the tail-end of a cold front sweeps eastward. Rain will be confined to the morning hours, dwindling down in the early afternoon and opening up to a few hours of sunshine before evening. A rumble of thunder will be possible in southern Florida and along the Southeastern U.S. coast. Highs will range from the 30s and 40s in the northern corridors of the Southeast to the 50s and 60s along the Gulf Coast. The mercury will even climb into the 70s in southern Florida.
Afternoon snow showers will peak into the Upper Midwest as a low pressure dips down from Canada. Snowflakes will be seen stretching from the northeastern corner of North Dakota over to Minnesota`s Arrowhead. Temperatures will plummet into the teens and 20s throughout the Upper Midwest and even down into the Mid-Mississippi Valley.
High pressure will dominate the rest of the U.S., making for mostly sunny skies and typical autumn temperatures. Highs in the Pacific Northwest, Intermountain West and Southern Plains will be in the 50s, rising into the 60s and 70s in the Southwest and West Coast. The Central Plains and Rockies will remain slightly cooler with highs in the upper 30s, 40s and lower 50s.
