Much-improved weather will build into the eastern U.S. today while mountain snow continues to bombard the northern Rockies. The South and Plains will enjoy quiet weather.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Green has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
A band of rain will keep the Pacific Northwest soaked again, while the Northern and Central Rockies maintain their recent trend of snowy weather. A few snow showers will even slide eastward into the Northern Plains for the afternoon. Temperatures will remain in the 40s and 50s in the Pacific Northwest while the Northern Plains, and Northern and Central Rockies keep cool in the upper 20s and 30s.
Farther east, chances for a wintry mix of snow and sleet will keep sidewalks and roadways in the Upper Midwest slick. The sleet and freezing rain will be confined to northern Minnesota and northern Wisconsin while fresh snow falls in Michigan`s Upper Peninsula. Temperatures will be in the upper 20s and 30s.
Early morning rain will keep eastern New England dreary, but drier weather and more sunshine will filter back across the Northeast as the weather system drags off the coast. Meanwhile, the remainder of the Eastern U.S. will see dry weather, accompanied by mild temperatures. Highs in the 40s and 50s will spread across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic while the Southeast rises into the 60s and 70s.
Sunny skies will dominate almost everywhere else in the Lower 48, with temperatures in the 40s from the Ohio Valley to the Central Plains. The Southern Tier of the U.S. will continue to see warm temperatures, with highs in the 60s and 70s being common in the Southern Plains, Southwest and West Coast.
