Today's Weather Outlook

There will be no rest for the winter storm weary Plains today. The progressive weather pattern across the U.S. continues with one storm exiting the Rockies and sliding through the Plains and into the Midwest. Meanwhile, both coasts will generally remain quiet.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.

Before daybreak, a swath of light snow will spread along Interstates 40, 70 and 80 in the Central U.S., with freezing rain causing problems from the Texas Red River Valley into the Tennessee Valley. Bursts of snow will slide into places like Kansas City, Mo., and Springfield, Ill., during the day.

The storm`s western flank will keep snow showers going across the Rockies as well. Brisk northeast winds will blow and drift the snow through the Plains and Rockies, limiting visibility on roadways.

While the East will start out dry, showers will spread across the Southeast later in the day. The Midwest and Tennessee Valley wintry weather will then quickly spread into the northern Appalachians by nightfall, quickly causing roads to become slippery. Meanwhile, the West Coast and Northeast will see plenty of sunshine. Clouds will filter the sunshine from the Northern Plains to the Great Lakes.

Single digits will shiver large stretches of the Northern Rockies and Northern Plains today. Teens will carve out a large area of real estate from the Northwest Mountains to the Rocky Front Range, and across the Central Plains to the Minnesota Arrowhead.

The Northwest Coast, Great Basin, Southern Plains and much of the East won`t get out of the 30s and 40s while more pleasant 50s, 60s and 70s stretch along the Southern Tier.
