Today's Weather Outlook
9 AM EST, January 27, 2014
By WeatherBug Sr. Meteorologist, John Bateman
Mother Nature just will not let much of the U.S. forget it`s late January. More Arctic air is diving south into the Northern Plains, Great Lakes, Midwest and Northeast.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
It won`t just be cold today; it will also be snowy and windy in many areas, with dangerous wind chills for much of the Northern Tier. Sunshine will filter in behind the cold front but that won`t help things warm at all, with highs remaining below zero degrees in Fargo, N.D., Minneapolis, and Chicago. Factor in the wind and wind chills will be 20 to 40 degrees below zero at times in the Upper Midwest through the Interior Northeast.
Farther eastward, there will be a brief warm-up early followed by a stark cool down by late-day. Along with that, some snow and snow showers will fall along the Great Lakes, Northeast, and Central Appalachians. Little or no accumulation is expected from Washington, D.C., to New York City, but temperatures will be nose-diving from the 30s and 40s early into the teens and 20s late.
The South and Southeast won`t feel the big cool-down until Tuesday, but temperatures will generally only warm into the 50s and low 60s across the region with chances for showers from New Orleans to Atlanta. Farther south into central and southern Florida, people will bask in temperatures in the 70s and low 80s.
In the West, more mountain snow will fall in the central and southern Rockies, with temperatures in the 20s and 30s. Along the Pacific Coast, highs will range from the 50s in the Northwest, 60s in northern California and 70s in Los Angeles. The Desert Southwest will also warm into the 60s and 70s in Las Vegas and Phoenix. Sunshine will be plentiful here.
