Today's Weather Outlook

The groundhog`s forecast of six more weeks of winter is right on par with Mother Nature`s thinking to kick off the new work week. A winter storm will dump heavy, wet snow accumulation across the interior Mid-Atlantic and New York Metro area while a new storm pulls into the Northwest.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
The morning commute will be anything but pleasant in the Mid-Atlantic. A storm socking the Mid-South will slide north and east, bringing snow to the Tennessee Valley before motoring to the Mid-Atlantic`s Interstate 95 corridor just in time for the morning commute.
While Washington, D.C., and Baltimore will see only small accumulations, the northwestern suburbs will get hammered with a half-foot or more of snow. Farther north, Philadelphia, much of New Jersey and New York City will see several inches of wet snow accumulation. The storm`s southern flank will produce showers in the Southeast.
Low pressure will slide into the Northwest and along the Rocky spine. Snow will blanket the Cascades and Northern Rockies while showers, mixed with wet snow dot the Northwest Coast. Otherwise, the Southwest, Plains, Mississippi Valley and much of New England will steer clear of any rain, ice or snow.
A typical early February temperature trend will set up in the U.S. Single digits and teens will rule the Northern Tier, 20s are expected in the Midwest and Northern Rockies with 30s and 40s along much of Interstate 70. Much of the Southern Tier will enjoy warmer 50s, 60s and 70s.
