Today's Weather Outlook
8 AM EDT, April 21, 2015
By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Chad Merrill
A cool late-April weather pattern will resonate from the Minnesota Arrowhead into the Ohio Valley while fresh spring storms jolt the Texas Panhandle.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.

The same cold front that triggered downpours and fresh storms late Monday along the East Coast will usher in cooler changes across the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley today. Detroit and Cleveland will see highs in the 50s. Along with the chill, a few rain showers will develop during the day. The rain will mix with snow farther north in Minnesota`s Arrowhead with 30s for International Falls.
Sunshine will greet large stretches of the Southern Tier into the Mid-Atlantic. The weather hiccup spot here will be west Texas and the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandle where late-day thunderstorms will contain hail larger than golf balls.
Another soggy day will greet New England with rain ending in time for the evening commute along Interstate 95. Dry weather will be found farther south along the East Coast and deep into Florida. Only places like Miami and West Palm Beach, Fla., could see an afternoon shower or thunderstorm.
While the day will begin dry across the Mid-Mississippi and Tennessee valleys, afternoon showers will pop up in time for an afternoon game of tennis or baseball. The same can be said across the Mountain West where morning sunshine will give way to a brief shower here and there. Afternoon showers will also be on the weather menu in the Northwest.
Much of the West Coast, Plains and Southeast will rebound into the 50s, 60s and 70s with warmer 80s in the typical spots like the Southwest, Rio Grande Valley and the Sunshine State. Besides the chilly Minnesota Arrowhead, northern New England will have a tough time reaching into the 50s.
