On the Plains, unfavorably hot weather continues in much of western and central Texas, where Sunday’s high temperatures generally ranged from 100 to 110°. Elsewhere, cool air continues to overspread the northern and central Plains, while a few rain showers linger across Montana.
Across the Corn Belt, highly beneficial showers are affecting both eastern and western portions of the region. However, pockets of developing drought still exist, especially from Nebraska to Ohio, and more rain will soon be needed to maintain current crop conditions.
In the South, weekend rainfall provided drought relief, mainly east of the Mississippi River. Some of the heaviest rain fell in the eastern Gulf Coast region, including northern Florida and southern portions of Alabama and Mississippi. Currently, scattered showers continue across the Southeast.
In the West, warm weather is returning to the Pacific Coast States, but cool conditions linger farther inland. Freeze Warnings were in effect early Monday in parts of northern Nevada and western Colorado.
