A strong low pressure off the Atlantic coast will bring a deluge to the Southeast, Carolinas and Mid-Atlantic. Residents will want to have their umbrellas and rain boots nearby as showers persist throughout the day. Rain will extend from central Georgia, through the Carolinas and into the Delmarva Peninsula, while the North Carolina Piedmont and southern and central Virginia deal with icy conditions this morning. Temperatures will range from the 30s in the northern Mid-Atlantic to the 40s and 50s in the southern Mid-Atlantic and interior Southeast.
Wintry weather will make a presence in a few locations in the Central U.S. as a front pushes southward. A bout of snow will blanket the mountains of the Northern and Central Rockies while, further east, a swath of light rain and snow extends from western Nebraska to central Iowa and Wisconsin. Temperatures remain in the upper 20s and lower 30s while rain falls in the southern half where highs will be in the 40s. The Northern and Central Rockies will see highs in the 30s and 40s.
Moisture will invade the Northwest U.S., producing a few showers along the Pacific Northwest coast and a few mountain snowflakes in the Cascades. Temperatures will be in the 50s in the Northern Great Basin and Pacific Northwest.
Sunshine will be abundant in the remainder of the U.S. Temperatures in the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest will be in the teens and 20s, rising into the 30s in the Northeast. Highs in the 40s will spread across the Midwest and Intermountain West while the mercury rises into the 60s in the Lower Mississippi Valley and eastern Southern Plains.
