Today's Weather Outlook

The holiday week kicks off to a damp start across the eastern two-thirds of the country, as the active weather pattern from over the weekend continues into the new week.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Bryan Karrick has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
The low pressure system that brought widespread rain to the Southeast over the weekend will begin to slide northward along the Eastern Seaboard today. Light-to-moderate rain will patter across rooftops from the coastal Mid-Atlantic down to northern Florida. Further north, a light mix of rain, snow and ice could disrupt the flow of the day for those along the New England Coast.
The Central U.S. will see much more weather activity across the board Monday. Light-to-moderate snow will dust the northern and central Plains, while strong winds developing across the High Plains today may make for poor driving conditions. A wintery mix of rain, snow, and ice will be possible further east across South Dakota, Minnesota, northern Wisconsin and the Upper Michigan Peninsula. To the south of the wintery mix, widespread moderate-to-heavy rain, with a few claps of thunder, will pour from the Mississippi Valley to the Ohio and Tennessee valleys and along the Gulf Coast States.
Across the West, rain from the weekend will continue to die down, but not before dropping another inch or two of rain as well as snow across coastal Washington and the Washington Cascades. Further east, the Intermountain West will see a few rain showers sprinkle across the intermountain valleys along the Rockies, while the Rockies themselves see mountain snow continue to fall throughout Monday.
Cold 20s and 30s will chill the Northeast and the central Appalachians, as well as the Rockies, northern Cascades, as well as across the northern tier from the Northern Plains to the Upper Mississippi Valley. Milder 40s and 50s will be spread west to east across the U.S., from the Pacific Northwest to the Carolinas. Warm highs in the 60s and 70s will remain across the southern tier from California to the Southeast, with 80s reaching Southern Florida, southern and central Texas, and Southern California.
