Groundhog Phil`s prediction of 6 more weeks of winter is right on cue with today's wintry mess across the Central U.S. A developing storm is bringing a snow and ice mess to the Southern Plains while colder air filters into the East.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Bryan Karrick has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.

A fresh low pressure across the Southern Plains is teaming up with cold air trickling south from a Canadian high pressure in the nation`s Heartland. This is creating the perfect recipe for snow as far south as Texas and Oklahoma Red River Valley. Snow is mixing with sleet at times in the Mid-South.

Farther north, showers are seeping into the Tennessee and Ohio valleys, changing to snow as cold air builds in before the moisture departs. Meanwhile, a few showers are dotting the landscape in the East and Deep South.

Much to California`s surprise, an offshore low pressure will swing inland, bringing a few sprinkles to the central Coast. Rain is desperately needed here with as an epic drought continues. A few rain and snow showers will pelt the Northwest, otherwise, the interior portions of the West, Central and Northern Plains and Great Lakes will stay dry today.

The coldest weather will be felt across the Northern Plains to Great Lakes with highs near 0 degrees. Teens and 20s will spread through the Northern Rockies into the Midwest with 20s, 30s and 40s common from the Northwest to the Southern Plains and east through the Ohio Valley into the Northeast.

Ahead of a cold front, highs will warm into the 50s, 60s and 70s from the southern Mid-Atlantic to the Gulf Coast.
