Cooler, showery weather to return next week

An extremely active weather pattern, featuring heavy rain, severe thunderstorms, and local flooding across the nation’s mid-section, will continue for the next 3 days. During the weekend, rainfall intensity will gradually diminish as showers shift into the South, East, and lower Midwest. Five-day rainfall totals could reach 2 to 5 inches from the southern Plains into the upper Midwest, with 1 to 3 inches possible as far east as the Appalachians. Little or no rain will fall, however, along the Atlantic Seaboard. Significant precipitation, including high-elevation snow, will occur across the northern and central Rockies and environs, but dry weather will prevail in the Desert Southwest and along the Pacific Coast. A period of very cool weather will trail the storminess, but warmth will return to the Pacific Coast by Friday and expand eastward during the weekend.

Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook for calls for the likelihood of below-normal temperatures in a broad area centered on the Plains, Midwest, and mid-South, while warmer-than-normal weather will be limited to the Far West and the middle and southern Atlantic coastal plain. Meanwhile, near- to above-normal precipitation across much of the country will contrast with drier-than-normal conditions in the Northwest and portions of the north-central U.S.
