|Drastic changes swoop over the U.S. just in time for the beginning of November. A taste of wintry snow, much needed Western rain and an arctic chill will dot the U.S. this weekend.|
WeatherBug Meteorologist Mace Michaels has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Morning showers over the Great Lakes and the Ohio Valley will move into the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast throughout the day today. Chances for snow will creep along the northern tier of the Northeast and Great Lakes and dive into the Ohio and Tennessee valleys along the Appalachians. A few isolated thunderstorms along the coastal Carolinas can`t be ruled out.
Cloudy 40s and 50s for much of the Great Lakes, Ohio Valley, Mid-Atlantic, and the Northeast, with a few 30s lingering over New England, Michigan and the southern and central Appalachians. Warmer 50s and 60s will sweep along the coastal Mid-Atlantic into the Southeast and Tennessee Valley, with sunny 70s making their way into the Florida Peninsula.
Dry fall weather dominates the Plains and the Mississippi Valley. Cool 40s and 50s will spread over the Northern Plains into the Upper and Mid-Mississippi valleys. Milder 50s and 60s extend through the central and southern Plains into the Lower Mississippi Valley with warmer 70s into Southern Texas and along the lee of the Rockies.
Showers from Friday continue to pelt California, the Pacific Northwest and the Great Basin, with chances for snow and thunderstorms over the higher elevations of the Sierras and the Intermountain West. Chilly, blustery 30s and 40s will keep chances for snow alive in the Great Basin, Cascades and the Sierras. More moderate 50s and 60s will be found along the coast of the Pacific Northwest into California with spotty 70s and 80s in Southern California and the Southwest Desert Valley.
The first day of standard time for most of U.S. will mean more chances for snow Sunday over New England and Upstate New York. Chilly 30s and 40s will take hold of the Northeast, Ohio valley, Great Lakes and the Upper Mid-Atlantic, while a mild swath of 50s and 60s cover the Tennessee Valley and the Southeast with 70s continuing to warm Florida.
A wintery mix of rain and snow will shower the Northern Plains with a chance for thunderstorms dotting the four corners states into the Central Plains and Western Texas. The rest of central U.S. remains cool and dry with 40s and 50s chilling the northern tier of the Midwest from the Northern Plains into the Upper and Mid-Mississippi valleys. Pleasant 60s and 70s sweep through the central and southern Plains into the Lower Mississippi Valley, with 80s peeking out in the Rio Grande Valley.
Another shot of rain aims for the Pacific Northwest, while snow showers continue to make their way through the Intermountain West into the Rockies. Freezing 20s and 30s will keep the northern and central Rockies cool enough for snow, while cool 40s hold up for much of the Great Basin. Mild 50s and 60s will slide down the coast from the Pacific Northwest into California and the Southwest, while 70s creep in to parts of Southern California and the Southwest Desert Valley.
