Another ruff day in store for the Midwest, cool and dry in the Northeast and the dry/warm trend continues in the West. RC

 

West

Outside of a few snow showers for parts the Northern Rockies (Montana, Wyoming and northern Colorado), the rest of the region looks to be dry and unseasonably mild today. Fog could also be an issue for parts of Washington, Oregon and Idaho during the morning hours, but just about everyone else outside of the mountain areas should see a warm and clear day. Look for highs from the single digits in the extreme northern mountains to the high 60's/low 70's for California and the Southwest. 

 

Midwest

Another Alberta clipper hits the region today, bringing more bad intentions. While this system is a stinger, the real issue could be how quickly this storm moves in; it will be the second storm to hit the region in just over 24 hours. Look for high winds, snow showers and the potential for blowing snow for the entire region with the heaviest concentrations in Indiana and Ohio. Road and resort warnings may pop up quickly, so make sure to call ahead. Things stay very cold in the region, with highs from 10 below in the upper Midwest to the mid 20's further south. 

 

Northeast

Outside of a few flurries in northern New England this morning, the region should be cool and dry through the day. As early evening arrives though, that fast moving clipper from the Midwest could bring action to western PA, western New York state and the mountains of West Virginia. Winds will also be up in the region today, making it feel like mid January. Highs from 5 below in New England to the mid 30's further south.
