Winter will show its face again across much of the Northern Tier for the conclusion of the abbreviated holiday workweek. Meanwhile, an abundance of sunshine will dominate the Southern U.S.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in her exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
Crisp arctic air will rush into the Northern Tier from Canada, accompanied by a bout of winter weather. Snow will powder much of the landscape between the northern Rockies and the Upper Midwest while a band of lake-effect snow slams into Lower Michigan`s west coast. A pocket of an icy, rainy mix will pop up in the northern Plains in places like Sioux Falls and Pierre, S.D.; the end result will be slick travel.
Not to be outdone, fresh mountain snow will blanket the high elevations of the northern and central Rockies. Mountain passes in the Cascade may even see a few snow showers throughout the day. Temperatures will range from the 10s and 20s in the Midwest, to the 20s and 30s across the northern Plains and elevated locations of the northern Rockies.
The remnants of the Eastern U.S.` major winter storm will slowly unwind for eastern New England residents, but not before leaving behind a blanket of significant snowfall along the Interstate 95 corridor from Rhode Island to eastern Maine. Additionally, high winds will whip the snow about, adding to the travel nightmare already at hand. Residents will need to bundle up in several layers as temperatures only top out in the single-digits and 10s. A few locations in the northern and mountainous reaches of the Northeast could see temperatures stay below zero.
A calm winter day is in the works for the remainder of the U.S. Highs in the 10s, 20s and 30s will be common in the Mid-Atlantic, Ohio and Mid-Mississippi Valley while temperatures rise into the 40s, 50s and 60s in the Southeast, Central and Southern Plains and the Intermountain West. The West Coast and Southwest will bask in plenty of sunshine as temperatures reach the upper 60s and 70s.
