Winter weather will be the headline in the Great Lakes and Upper Midwest just in time for mid-week. Elsewhere, the Mid-Atlantic and Florida will each need to carry the umbrella home from the office or school.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
Snow and rain will make for a few troubles in the Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic as a low pressure pushes eastward. Scattered snow showers will dot the landscape from the Lower Great Lakes to the Tennessee Valley. Lake-effect snow showers will also be on the menu in locations like Cleveland and Erie, Pa. Meanwhile, residents of the Mid-Atlantic and interior Northeast will want to have their umbrellas handy as rain spreads from the northern reaches of New York to North Carolina. Temperatures will warm up into the 40s and 50s in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast while the Lower Great Lakes, Ohio and Tennessee valleys see highs in the 20s and 30s.
A front sweeping through the Upper Midwest will produce a wintry mix of snow and ice that could pose a problem for those on the roads. Ice will be confined mostly to the eastern corridors of the northern Plains and northwest Minnesota while snow blankets the rest of Minnesota this afternoon. By evening, snow showers will move into Wisconsin and the Upper Great Lakes. Temperatures will stay cold, with highs in the teens and 20s in the Upper Midwest and Upper Great Lakes. The northern Plains will see temperatures in the 30s, rising into the 40s and 50s towards the west.
Other than a couple showers in southern Florida, the rest of the U.S. will see an abundance of sunshine. Temperatures in the northern Rockies will be in the 30s, rising into the 40s and 50s in the Pacific Northwest, Intermountain West and central Plains. The Southeast and southern Plains will be warmer with highs in the upper 50s and 60s while the West Coast and Southwest rise into the 70s and even the low 80s.
