Today's Weather Outlook

Harsh winter weather will show no mercy as a concoction of snow and ice paralyze the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Not to be outdone, bone-chilling Arctic air will swoop into the Northern Plains.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.
A powerful winter storm will unload bouts of snow across the Northeast and Great Lakes today. Snow will blanket much of New England, throwing a monkey wrench in the morning commute. While a few slippery spots can be expected off the Mid-Atlantic`s Interstate 95 corridor, a major ice storm will sock interior locations along Interstate 81.
Temperatures in the Great Lakes, Midwest and interior Northeast will be in the 20s, rising into the 30s across the Mid-Atlantic and coastal New England.
Drenching showers and possibly a rumble of thunder will stomp through the Southeast as a cold front heads for the coast. Heavy rainfall and a thunderstorm could be seen right ahead of the front during the morning and early afternoon before the front brings drier weather by sunset. Interior sections of the Southeast will only budge into the 40s and 50s while the coast will jump into the 70s and 80s.
Bitter cold weather will embrace the Upper Midwest and Plains today. Frigid temperatures will be all too common across the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest as highs stay 10 to 15 degrees below zero. Single-digit highs will continue to infiltrate the Central Plains, with temperatures in the teens, 20s, and 30s deep into Texas.
Sunny skies will brighten the West while crisp mountain snow falls across the Rockies. Highs in the single-digits, teens and 20s will rule the Rockies, rising into the 30s and 40s in the Pacific Northwest. The West Coast and Southwest will have temperatures in the 50s and 60s.
