An active pattern expands across the Heartland

Back-to-back storms will cross the western and central U.S., maintaining showery weather in all areas except the Desert Southwest and the Atlantic Coast States. Five-day rainfall could reach 2 to 4 inches from the southern Plains into the upper Midwest, along with possible severe thunderstorms and flooding. Meanwhile, 1- to 3-inch totals can be expected in some areas from the Pacific Northwest to the northern and central Rockies, with higher elevations experiencing snow. Cool weather will accompany the storm systems, but warmth will prevail in the eastern U.S. and return by week’s end across the Pacific Coast States.

Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for the likelihood of above-normal temperatures in the eastern and western U.S., while cooler-than-normal conditions can be expected across the nation’s mid-section. Meanwhile, near- to above-normal precipitation across most of the country will contrast with drier-than-normal weather in the Northwest and the Dakotas.
