Locally heavy showers will continue to spread across the South. Five-day rainfall totals could reach 2 to 4 inches in the southern Atlantic States. Meanwhile, locally heavy showers will continue in the Four Corners States, with flash flooding possible. In contrast, hot, mostly dry weather will dominate the Pacific Coast States. Elsewhere, a few showers will dot the northern Plains and the Midwest, but dry weather will cover the remainder of the nation’s mid-section.
Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for below-normal temperatures in large sections of the central and eastern U.S., as well as the central Rockies, while hotter-than-normal conditions will cover the lower Southeast, the lower Rio Grande Valley, and the Far West. Meanwhile, near- to above-normal rainfall across the majority of the U.S. will contrast with drier-than-normal conditions in the Pacific Northwest, northern Plains, far upper Midwest, and southern parts of Arizona, Texas, and Florida.
