It will continue to be cold and blustery across the Northeast on Wednesday and it looks like this late winter blast will hang around for awhile. Look for frequent snow showers throughout the region, especially southeast of the Great Lakes in cities like Syracuse, N.Y. High temperatures on Wednesday will range from the teens in northern Michigan to the 40s around the Chesapeake Bay. It will be windy, especially around the East Coast.



A cold northwesterly flow of air will continue across the Great Lakes and parts of the Midwest on Wednesday. Snow showers will continue south and southeast of the Great Lakes, especially in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and in western sections of the Lower Peninsula. Snow showers will also continue over parts of northern Ohio and northern Indiana. Cold temperatures will prevail across the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley but it will be much milder across the Plains. High temperatures on Wednesday from Minneapolis, Minn., to Columbus, Ohio, will be 10 to 15 degrees below average on Wednesday.



Many residents of the Southeast will wake up to sub-freezing temperatures, even over parts of northern Florida. Temperatures will remain well below average, especailly east of the Mississippi River for awhile. Precipitation issues will mainly be confined to parts of Texas where a disturbance aloft will pull up Gulf moisture resulting in rain and thunderstorms. Look for thunderstorms early on Wednesday around the Hill Country to move eastward toward the western Gulf Coast region by evening. There will be thunderstorms included and some may contain hail.



A trough of low pressure is parked off the West Coast and is sending a series of disturbances into the Pacific Northwest. Look for rain showers, and higher elevation snow, from central California northward to Washington and eastward to the Great Basin. Temperatures over West will be close to seasonal averages except in Montana and much of Wyoming where highs will remain mild. High temperatures are expected to range from the 30s in some Rocky Mountain locations to the 70s in Mojave and Sonoran Deserts of California and Arizona.
