    Presidents Day 2012

    Today is Presidents Day; let's see what's happening around the country at presidential locations. The Obama residence in Washington, D.C, near Reagan National Airport missed snow last night and sunshine will prevail today with afternoon temperatures in the 40s. North Adams, Mass., Coolidge Corners outside Boston and Lincoln, Maine, will have sunshine today, then milder weather tomorrow as clouds approach from the west. The weather should not veto outdoor plans tomorrow in many areas. With dry conditions, the high temperature will be 48 in Garfield, N.J., and 43 near Nixon Rd in central Pennsylvania... just a little cooler at Taftville, Conn., and Trumansburg N.Y.... but near 50 in Buchanon and Chadd's Ford, Pa.

    There could be a some snow tonight in Clintonville and Madison, Wis., and a rain/snow mix may fall on Chicago's Kennedy and Eisenhower expressways. It could be slippery tomorrow morning from Van Buren and Jackson counties in Michigan over to Roosevelt Park, Mich.... but only showers are likely in Cleveland, Ohio.

    Jefferson City, Mo., will have a windy milder afternoon, but Jefferson, Maine, will be governed by sunshine and a chill in the air. It will become warmer at Port Arthur and Tyler, Texas, with the warmup extending from Monroe. La., over to Jackson, Miss., Hoover, Ala., and then Cartersville Ga. The high pressure area administering the warmup will also affect Harrison, Ark., and Johnson City, Tenn.

    In Florida, it'll go toward 70 in Polk County and Fort Pierce. It'll be mild at Busch gardens. Chilly air reaches Wilson, N.C., today but leaves tomorrow. Mt McKinley will be cold. More dry weather is likely this week at Harding, Ariz., and Grants N.M. South winds will shift to northwest to bring a temporary chill back through Lincoln, Hayes and Fillmore, Neb., today, but it will be milder later tomorrow. That's the weather from ... hopefully ... unimpeachable sources.
