Coolness may linger across the Heartland

Hot, mostly dry weather will continue to impact the Northwest for the remainder of the week. In addition, wildfire smoke trapped by stagnant atmospheric conditions will maintain poor Northwestern air quality. Meanwhile, monsoon-related showers will be most numerous across the central and southern Rockies, where 5-day rainfall totals could reach 1 to 3 inches. Somewhat higher totals can be expected across portions of the central and southern Plains over the weekend, but the drought-stricken northern High Plains should receive less than an inch during the next 5 days. Elsewhere, cool weather will continue in the central and eastern U.S., along with periods of heavy rain—locally 2 to 4 inches—from the central Gulf Coast region to Georgia and the Carolinas.

Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for below-normal temperatures across a broad section of the country, including most areas between the Rockies and the Appalachians. Warmer-than-normal weather will be mostly limited to California, Florida, southern Texas, and areas along the Atlantic Seaboard. Meanwhile, near- to above-normal rainfall across most of the U.S. will contrast with drier-than-normal conditions in the Great Lakes region.
