Today's Weather Outlook
UPDATED 9 AM EST, January 13, 2013
UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Chad Merrill
Soggy weather is on the weather menu just in time for the start of the new workweek from the Deep South to the Ohio Valley, while winter remains in full swing across the Northwest. The East Coast and West Coast will remain quiet.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
A disturbance sliding northward from the Gulf of Mexico, and teaming up with a cold front edging into the Ohio Valley, will ensure windshield wipers get a workout for the start of the new workweek from New Orleans to Pittsburgh. The rain will arrive in the Appalachians by nightfall.
Meanwhile, gusty, cold winds and snow will continue full throttle from the Northwest into the northern Rockies. The snow will edge into the Dakotas and Minnesota, including the Twin Cities, late this evening and tonight. Although the snow will be light and not amount to much, travel along Interstates 90 and 94 will be difficult with gusty winds at times blowing and drifting the snow about.
Meanwhile, the West, central and southern Plains, and East Coast will see plenty of sunshine just in time for the start of the new workweek.
Cold single digits and teens will grip northern Minnesota and North Dakota, while 20s and 30s will reside across the Mountain West, northern Plains, Midwest, Great Lakes, and Northeast. Winter will be absent across the remainder of the U.S. with 50s draped from the West Coast to the southern Plains, Tennessee and Ohio valleys and Mid-Atlantic. The U.S.`s far Southern-Tier will enjoy comfortable 60s and 70s.
