UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Andrew Rosenthal
The homestretch of the workweek will be full of a bit of every season, ranging from spring warmth in the Desert Southwest and California to wintry weather and a deep freeze blanketing the Central and Eastern U.S.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in her exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
Yet another Alberta Clipper will race through the Great Lakes today, moving into the Mid-Atlantic late in the day. While nowhere near as strong as Tuesday`s snowstorm, it will still squeeze out an inch or two of fluffy snow from the Great Lakes into the Ohio Valley and along the Appalachian Spine. The exception to this will be in the favored snow belts along Lake Michigan`s eastern shorelines, where up to 6 inches will be common in northwestern Indiana and western Michigan.
More importantly, the system will serve as the impetus for highs only reaching the teens along the path of the storm, with sub-zero temperatures in its wake across the northern Plains.
Not to be left out, an upper-level disturbance will slide through the central and southern Rockies, before stumbling into the Lone Star late this afternoon and evening. Snow showers are likely from Colorado to west Texas, with a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain causing slick travel for places like San Angelo and Austin, Texas. A chilly rain will pelt San Antonio and south Texas. Temperatures will top out in the upper 30s this morning, before falling into the 20s by afternoon.
For the rest of the East, a chilly start will give way to a pleasant afternoon full of sunshine. Temperatures will reach the 30s across the Mid-South, with 40s and 50s in the Deep South. Florida will climb into the 60s and 70s.
"Chilly" will be nowhere in the vocabulary of the West Coast, as the abnormally mild January weather continues. Temperatures could once again top 80 degrees in the Los Angeles area, with 60s as far north as northern California. Highs will be in the 50s even into the Northwest.
