Northern Plains heat; Midwestern rains

Periodic showers will continue across the eastern one-third of the U.S., where 5-day rainfall totals could reach 1 to 3 inches or more. Showers will be spottier across the Plains, with little or no drought relief expected on the northern Plains. The West will remain very hot, although showers associated with the monsoon circulation will gradually begin to affect the Southwest and Intermountain West. During the weekend and early next week, heat will extend as far east as the High Plains.

Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for near- to above-normal temperatures nearly nationwide, with the northern Plains experiencing the greatest likelihood of hot weather. Cooler-than-normal conditions should be limited to parts of the Northeast. Meanwhile, below-normal rainfall across the Plains and Northwest will contrast with wetter-than-normal weather in the Southwest and east of the Mississippi River.
