Despite it being the first official weekend of spring, more snow chances will fall across the Northern Tier and more cold will filter southward into the U.S.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Green has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Winter weather will keep a grip on the U.S. as a few areas of snow develop across the Rockies and northern Great Lakes, although any accumulations will generally be light. It will still be quite chilly along the northern fringes of the U.S., with highs in the teens and 20s in the coldest locations close to the Canadian border. Slightly "milder" temperatures in the 20s and 30s will be found farther south.
Once again, residents in the Southeast U.S. will want to have their rain gear nearby as showers slide through the region. Rain chances will stretch from the Southern Plains eastward along the Gulf Coast and into the Southeast. Temperatures will generally warm into the 50s and 60s from Dallas to Raleigh-Durham, N.C. As usual, the balmiest weather will be found in Florida, where highs will hit the 70s and 80s.
The Central Plains and Midwest will be cool but dry as high pressure settles in from the north. Mostly sunny skies will also be the rule, as temperatures reach the 30s and 40s for highs by afternoon in places like Omaha, Neb., St. Louis, and Cincinnati. Farther south, there will be more cloud cover but milder conditions as highs hit the 50s.
The West will see dry weather from Seattle to San Diego, with high temperatures generally in the 40s and 50s in the Pacific Northwest. Milder 60s and 70s will be the rule across much of California, while Las Vegas and Phoenix hit the 70s and 80s under sunny skies.
