|Wipers, scrapers, and snow shovels will be necessary to start off the new week as storm systems from the weekend, along with a few fresh ones, churn out messy weather across the U.S.|
A few storm systems from the weekend will keep residents busy across the Rockies, Southern Tier and the Northeast today.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Bryan Karrick has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Fresh snow will begin the day for the Rockies, the Sierra Nevada, the central Great Basin, as well eastern portions of the central Great Plains. Some remnant snow will also fall along the Eastern U.S., including the central Appalachians and parts of the Northeast.
Elsewhere, a messy wintry mix of sleet, freezing rain, and snow will be possible Monday morning from northeastern New Mexico and Texas` north-central Plains to southern West Virginia, before switching over to rain by Monday afternoon.
Rain will pour within the warmer temperatures of California and the Southwest, as well as across the South from southwestern Texas to the Southeast. Residents along the southern California coast and the Lower Colorado Valley of Arizona could wake up to a clap or two of thunder this morning, while thunderstorms look to develop from the Ark-La-Tex region to the southern Mid-Mississippi and Ohio valleys late today into tonight.
Heading into this evening, a storm system positioned over Colorado will team up with one across southern Canada to bring a mixed bag of weather overnight into Tuesday morning. Winds will pick up across the Great Plains, while fresh snow piles up from the Rockies to the Great Lakes. A wintery mix of sleet, snow and freezing rain will create even more of a mess from the eastern portions of the Central Plains to the western Ohio Valley. Rain will continue to pelt across the Southern Tier, from Southern California to the western Carolinas.
Highs will continue to moderate a bit, bringing back more seasonal temperatures to the U.S. Cold 20s and 30s will sweep the Northern Tier from the Rockies to the Northeast. Cool 40s and 50s will swing down from the Pacific Northwest and the Great Basin into the Southern Plains and the Southeast. Warmer highs in the 60s and 70s will remain over California, the Southwest, the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, the Central Gulf Coast, and the Florida Peninsula.
