|A late-season winter storm will keep the Eastern U.S. quite busy on Wednesday. Meanwhile, the Western U.S. opens up to plenty of sunshine.|
WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in her exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Snow will be piling up in the Northeast and Midwest as winter manages to keep a firm grasp on the U.S. A potent low pressure system will ride up along the Atlantic Coast, producing abundance of snow from interior New England to the Great Lakes. Furthermore, a relatively small but disrupting pocket of ice will stretch along the Pennsylvania and New York border and into southern Vermont and New Hampshire. Temperatures will vary from the teens and 20s in the Great Lakes to the 30s in the interior Northeast.
The same system smashing the Northeast with winter weather will bring a soaking to coastal New England, the Mid-Atlantic and even down into the Southeast. Rain will extend all along the Atlantic coast from Massachusetts to Florida and even reach as far west as the Ohio and Tennessee valleys. A chance for a few rumbles of thunder will not be out of the question as showers persist throughout the afternoon and into the late evening. Temperatures in the 40s will spread across the coastal Northeast, warming up into the 50s and 60s in the interior Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. The coastal Mid-Atlantic and Southeast will feel highs rise into the 70s and 80s.
Rich blues skies will be plentiful in the Western and Central U.S. as high pressure begins to settle in. Bitter temperatures in the teens and 20s will linger across the Upper Midwest while the Northern and Central Plains, Pacific Northwest, Intermountain West and Rockies rise into the 40s and 50s. The Lower Mississippi Valley and Southern Plains will be in the 60s and 70s while the West Coast and Southwest see the mercury rise into the upper 70s and lower 80s.
