|The wild rollercoaster temperature ride of recent will continue for the conclusion of the weekend across the U.S. The main weather blemish will be found from the Upper Midwest to Ohio Valley, where spring snow, a wintry mix and a few showers could all become travel headaches.|
WeatherBug Meteorologist Sam Ryan has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Low pressure cruising just north of the Great Lakes will deliver a quick burst of snow, a wintry mix and showers from the eastern Dakotas into the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley for the conclusion of the final weekend in March.
For those travelling across central and northern Michigan later this afternoon and evening, snow will blanket the ground with 2 to 4 inches creating hazardous travel along Interstate 75. Further west over Wisconsin, northern Illinois, eastern Iowa and southeastern Minnesota, a mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain will cause additional travel problems as well. Even a few snowflakes or a wintry mix will develop across western New York and the northern Appalachian Spine this evening into tonight.
Meanwhile, the southern flank of the storm ahead of the cold front will lead to spotty showers along the Interstate 70 corridor for the Missouri and Ohio valleys today.
The only other weather hiccups will be found in the Colorado and southern Rocky Front Range, as well as across western Washington State. In each area, rain, showers and even a few rumbles of thunder will send a few outdoor plans indoors.
There will be quite a temperature contrast across the U.S. to round out the weekend. Everywhere east of the Mississippi River Delta will stay below typical late-March standards, with the mercury ranging from the cold 30s and 40s in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Great Lakes and Ohio Valley, to the chilly 60s and 70s along the Gulf Coast, Southeast and Florida. Those west of the Mississippi River Delta will warm into the 60s, 70s, 80s and lower 90s today.
