Storm Central
Thursday's Weather Outlook
3 PM EST, February 10, 2016
By WeatherBug Sr. Meteorologist, James West
It will be the tale of two seasons across the U.S. Thursday, with some people enjoying some early-spring temperatures while others bundle up under layers of winter clothes.
A blast of arctic air diving south across the entire central and eastern U.S. will bring unseasonably cold air deep into the South, Southeast and Florida Thursday.
The coldest temperatures will be found throughout the northern Plains, Upper Midwest, and Great Lakes into the interior Northeast. Highs will only reach into the upper teens to low 20s after a subzero start to the day. A few snow showers will be possible downwind of the Great Lakes and across the western High Plains.
Even the rest of the central Plains, Midwest, central Mississippi and Ohio valleys, Appalachians and the Mid-Atlantic will struggle to rise above freezing, with many locations not even seeing the mercury rise out of the 20s. The Mid-South and southern Appalachians will rise in the 40s.
Although the South, Southeast and northern Florida will see 50s and 60s Thursday afternoon, this will still be 10- to 20-degrees colder than the normal early-February highs. The only place east of the Rockies that will be warm Thursday will be The Lone Star State. Locations closest to the Rio Grande will be in the 80s, with the rest of the state seeing 60s and 70s.
If you are looking for some warmer weather than the central and eastern U.S. offers, well than head to the West. The entire U.S. west of the Rockies will be above normal, with highs ranging from the low to middle 40s across the Rockies and Mountain West to much warmer upper 70s and low 80s across the Southwest and southern California. The rest of the Golden State will be in the low 70s while the Northwest sees temperatures in the 50s and low 60s. Outside of some late-arriving rain in the Northwest, the entire West will have plenty of sunshine Thursday.
