Heat to intensify in the Southwest
Over the next 5 days, additional rain is expected to fall from the northern Plains, through the Corn Belt, and into the Southeast. One to 3 inches of rainfall are likely to fall in these regions, with up to 5 inches in some localized areas. This rain will be especially beneficial in the Corn Belt, where little rain has fallen over the last 2 weeks. Elsewhere, dry weather will persist in the Four Corners States, as well as Nevada and California. Meanwhile, warmer-than-average weather will continue throughout much of the country over the next few days, with the lone cool region being the Pacific Northwest.
Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook suggests that above-average rainfall will occur in the eastern one-third of the country, while mostly dry weather will prevail across the Plains and the Northwest. Meanwhile, much warmer-than-normal conditions are likely in the western U.S., especially in the Desert Southwest. Additionally, warmth is expected in the southern Atlantic region, while cooler-than-normal weather should be limited to the Midwest.
