The wrath of winter will live on in the Northeast and Midwest today. Elsewhere, the Pacific Northwest will continue to be caught in the middle of a deluge.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Green has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
A couple of disturbances crawling across the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley will make for another brutal, wintry day for the Midwest, Ohio Valley and interior New England. Snow will continue to pile up across the interior Northeast this morning, stretching from Maine to upstate New York. Fresh snow will also blanket the central Plains down into the Ohio and Mid-Mississippi valleys. Temperatures across the Midwest will range from the teens and 20s in the Upper Great Lakes and the 30s in the Lower Great Lakes. The interior Northeast will see highs reach the lower 30s while coastal New England rises into the 40s.
As temperatures warm further south, the same system will bring downpours to the Tennessee Valley and showers to the interior Southeast and Lower Mississippi Valley. A mixed bag of rain and snow will stretch from central Missouri through central Kentucky. Temperatures across the Tennessee Valley will be in the upper 30s and 40s while the interior Southeast feels highs in the 50s and 60s.
Pounding rains will keep the Pacific Northwest under an umbrella as a front sneaks its way inland. Steady rain will reach from the Pacific Northwest to northern California and even into the Northern Great Basin. Meanwhile, the Northern and Central Rockies and Cascades will be powdered again by a blast of mountain snow. Highs in the 40s and 50s will be common through the Northwest U.S., except for a few mountainous locations seeing temperatures in the 30s.
Winter will retreat from the Southern Tier of the U.S. as warmer temperatures finally return. Highs in the 70s and 80s will be widespread across the West Coast, Southwest and Southern Plains. The coastal Southeast will see a refreshing rise in temperatures as well with highs in the upper 60s and 70s.
On the flip side, the Northern Plains will continue to be frozen in a burst of arctic air as temperatures sink to a few degrees below zero, single-digits and teens. The Central Plains and Mid-Atlantic will see highs in the 30s and 40s.
