Today's Weather Outlook

After being repeatedly battered by snow and ice, the Northeast will finally see calmer weather today. In the Nation`s Heartland however, snow and bitterly cold air will sink southward out of Canada once again.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.
The Northeast and Mid-Atlantic will be able to dig out from under several inches of snow and scrape off the ice today, although the region won`t get much help from warming temperatures. Under partly sunny skies, highs will range from the mid-30s in Washington, D.C., to the upper 20s in New York City and Boston, and upper teens in inland New England and New York.
The big weather story will be the bitter cold surge, which will again dive far southward into Texas and the Lower Mississippi Valley. It will be dry and frigid in the Northern Plains and Great Lakes with highs in the single digits, along with some snow showers in the Central Plains. Even the southern Plains will see the chance of light snow showers, with highs in the upper 20s in Dallas and teens in Oklahoma City. Places as far south as New Orleans and Houston will see chilly rain showers with highs in the upper 30s and low 40s.
The Southeast will be rather cool for February, as temperatures only hit the 40s in Raleigh, N.C. and Atlanta. Slightly milder air will hug the Southeastern Coast, with 50s and 60s across northern Florida and 70s and 80s in southern Florida.
Even the Pacific Northwest will tap into this Arctic air. Seattle and Portland will see highs in the 20s and 30s, as the Intermountain West stays snowy and cold. California and the Desert Southwest will see some rain shower chances with highs generally in the mid-60s in Los Angeles and Phoenix. Cooler 50s will be found along the northern California coast.
