The Northeast will say goodbye to another coastal storm as the Great Lakes sees a few more snowflakes today. In the West, more rain and mountain snow are on tap.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Katie Ferrier has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Northern Maine will still feel the lingering effects of a one-two punch of nor'easters this morning, while the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast finally get a chance to enjoy some calmer weather. This second system will bring a moderate cool-down though, keeping much of the Eastern Seaboard a little cooler than average for mid-February.
Highs will range from the breezy upper 20s in Boston to the low 30s in New York. Mid-to-upper 30s will be the rule through the Mid-Atlantic. For milder weather, head south to the Carolinas and Georgia where highs will range from the mid-40s to the lower 60s. Florida will stay mild as well with highs generally in the 60s and 70s.
Across the Great Lakes and Appalachians, scattered snow showers will continue today. Indianapolis, Cleveland and Pittsburgh will all see the chance for a little snow, while a wintry mix falls along the mountains of West Virginia to North Carolina. Highs will generally remain in the 20s across Great Lakes, with 30s into the Ohio Valley.
The Northern Plains will see a few snow showers late-day in the Dakotas with highs in the teens and 20s. Partly-to-mostly sunny skies will rule the rest of the Plains, as highs range from the 30s and 40s in the Central Plains to the 60s and 70s in Oklahoma and Texas.
More rain and mountain snow will move over the West today. Rain will fall from Seattle to Portland, and even as far south as San Francisco. A wintry mix and some accumulating snow will also fall in the higher elevations of the Great Basin and Rockies. Southern California and the Desert Southwest will be fair and warm, with highs in the 70s and 80s.
