A quiet start to the workweek

The cleanup will continue today across the Northeast now that "The Blizzard of 2005" continues to move away from the region. Cold temperatures remain though and will likely continue to impact the region through the week. Winds should diminish throughout the day today and this should end much of the blowing and drifting. While partly cloudy skies will generally dominate today, a very weak disturbance will race through the region and this could spread a few flurries and snow showers across New York and Pennsylvania this afternoon and evening. Some light accumulations are possible downwind of the Lakes Erie and Ontario. Highs will range from the 10s and 20s across New England to the 30s across the Mid-Atlantic.



After a very cold start across the Southeast, highs will rebound this afternoon as westerly winds kick in around high pressure. This high pressure system will result in ample sunshine across the region and even send readings above average across Southern Plains as southerly winds warm things up. Highs this afternoon will range from the 60s across Texas and South Florida to the 40s across the 40s across the Carolinas and northern Georgia. The fire danger will be high across southern Georgia and into Florida due to the low relative humidity.



Mild temperatures will dominate today across the Plains, Upper Midwest and mid-Mississippi Valley as warm westerly winds flow across the region. In contrast, the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley regions will experience temperatures closer to average as a northwesterly flow remains in control. Highs will range from the warm 60s across the High Plains to the chilly 20s across the Upper Ohio Valley. Sunshine should be widespread with only a few snow showers downwind of the Great Lakes.



A ridge of high pressure remains in control of the region’s weather and thus more dry and warm weather can be expected. The exceptions will across the Pacific Northwest and the Desert Southwest where a few showers are possible. In addition, sections of the Great Basin will remain soupy as fog will again hide the sun and keep temperatures down. Highs will range from the 50s across the Pacific Northwest to the 70s across Southern California and the Southwest.
