|A winter storm will lash much of New England while Western U.S. warmth builds. In between, cold but dry weather is expected.|
WeatherBug Meteorologist Mace Michaels has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.
A powerful coastal storm will bring heavy snow and high winds to parts of eastern New England today. Locations from Connecticut and Rhode Island to eastern Massachusetts will see 5-10 inches of snow, and a few places will see a foot or more of snow. On top of the heavy snow will also come strong, gusty winds. A few coastal locations might even gust to 50 mph, and blizzard conditions are possible on Cape Cod and the Islands. The remainder of the Northeast will be dry and chilly, with highs in the 20s and 30s.
Breezy and cool weather will sweep across the Southeast U.S. in the wake of Sunday's major storm, although a stray rain or snow shower cannot be ruled out from Georgia to Mississippi. Highs will top out in the 60s across Florida to the 30s from the Carolinas to Mississippi.
Snow showers and cold, breezy weather will be entrenched across the Great Lakes and Midwest with highs ranging from the teens in Minnesota to around 40 degrees in Ohio and Kentucky. The same weather system will bring a few spits of rain and snow later in the evening to the Mid-Atlantic.
Dry and much more tranquil weather will be found in much of the Western U.S. With high pressure in control, most areas will see sunshine and well-above normal temperatures. Highs will hit the 70s and 80s from Arizona into much of California, with 40s, 50s and 60s elsewhere in the West.
