Today's Weather Outlook

By WeatherBug Sr. Meteorologist, James West
After a wild couple of days of snow and even spring-like thunderstorms, the weather across the U.S. will return to a quieter pattern today. Even so, the Northeast will still have to contend with some morning snow.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
A large coastal system exiting the Northeast will keep snow in the picture through the morning hours across interior New England. A couple of inches are expected here, with north-central Maine seeing heavy snow continuing through midday.
The big winter storm exiting the Northeast is dragging cold air deep into the Ohio Valley, Mid-Atlantic, and interior South. Today`s temperatures will be 20-to-30 degrees colder than the March normal in the Southeast. Highs will range from the upper teens and low 20s around the Great Lakes, to upper 50s and low 60s in the Southeast and along the eastern Gulf Coast. The Midwest, Ohio Valley, and Mid-Atlantic will be in the low 30s, with the Carolinas and central Mississippi Valley seeing upper 40s and the lower Mississippi Valley, South and Southeast seeing 60s. Even Florida will only be in the low 70s.
The rest of the U.S., from the Mississippi Valley westward to the Pacific, will have no weather problems. Plenty of sunshine will produce seasonal to slightly above-normal temperatures ranging from the low-to-mid 50s in the Northwest, Mountain West, and high western Plains, to upper 60s to near 70 degrees throughout the Central and Southern Plains, southern Rockies, Great Basin, and northern California. Highs will warm to around 80 degrees across southern California and the Southwest.
