Another round of winter weather will run amuck in the Midwest and Great Lakes today. Meanwhile, an abundance of sunshine will prevail across the Southern U.S.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in her exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
A potent low pressure trekking across the Midwest will bring a fresh bounty of snowfall to the Great Lakes. Snow showers will spread across the eastern corridors of the Upper Midwest and will extend across the Great Lakes. Lake-effect snow will slam locations like Erie, Pa., in the Lower Great Lakes while the Ohio Valley even sees a few snowflakes throughout this afternoon. Temperatures in the Upper Great Lakes will be in the teens while the Lower Great Lakes remain chilly in the single-digits. Residents of the Upper Midwest and eastern Northern Plains will want to bundle up as a surge of arctic air drops highs up to ten degrees below zero.
Plenty of snow will be on the weather line-up for the Northern Rockies and western corridors of the Northern Plains as a burst of cold air pushes southward. Locations like Helena and Bozeman, Mont., will see a crisp batch of snowfall today while snow showers creep into the western reaches of South Dakota and Nebraska later in the afternoon. Temperatures will range from the single-digits in the western side of the Northern Plains to the teens, 20s and low 30s across the Northern Rockies and Central Plains.
Remnants of Tuesday`s winter storm will linger in the extreme Northeast, bringing snow to much of Maine, New Hampshire and coastal New England. Snow will be steady in the morning and will move out to the north by late afternoon. Temperatures across the Northeast will range from the single-digits to the upper teens.
Winter weather will be scarce elsewhere as sunshine and clear skies dominate the Southern and Western U.S. Highs in the Mid-Atlantic will be in the teens, 20s, and 30s while the interior Southeast, Intermountain West, Central Rockies and Pacific Northwest see highs in the 40s and 50s. The Southern Plains, West Coast, Southwest and southern Florida will be the warmest spots with highs in the 60s and 70s.
