Today's Weather Outlook

By WeatherBug's Tim Barnes
The Northwest continues to experience endless rain, while the Northeast sees their downpours finally beginning to let up. In between, the Central U.S. enjoys great sunny weather to close out the work week.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Rob Koch has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.

The Northeast will see a few more sprinkles headed into the end of the workweek as the nor`easter begins to trek off. Clouds associated with this system will hang in over much of the Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic, and Ohio River Valley today. Spotty 40s along the Canadian border with Maine are possible, while the rest should see cool 50s and 60s chilled by the looming clouds.

A few morning clouds are expected for the South, Southeast, Tennessee Valley, and the Carolinas. These clouds should clear out by the early afternoon. Warm 70s and even a few 80s in Central Florida will produce a pleasant day, while cooler 60s are possible along the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Southern Florida continues to get a chance for some thunderstorms, especially over the Florida Keys.

A few clouds will hang over the Northern Plains, Upper and Mid-Mississippi valleys throughout the day. Those wishing for warmer weather shouldn`t fret as even with the clouds, much warmer temperatures aim to hit. Warm 80s and 90s can be expected over much of the Plains and the Mississippi Valley with more moderate 60s and 70s up in the Northern Plains and Upper Mississippi Valley.

The Northwest continues to experience more endless downpours. These showers are expected over much of the Pacific Northwest, Northern Great Basin and edging into Northern California. Chances for snow should be confined to higher elevations. Cloudy and wet weather will bring in cool 50s and 60s, with chilly 30s and 40s at higher elevations in the Cascades and the Northern Rockies.

Southern California and the Southwest can expect to see a sunny Friday. Clear skies will provide warm 80s and 90s, with a good chance of seeing plenty of 100s in the Southwest Desert Valley.
