More rain for much of the Plains, greater Corn Belt

Generally cool weather will persist into next week in California and the Northwest, while a cooling trend will take place across the nation’s northern tier. Warm weather will prevail in other areas of the U.S. Meanwhile, a rather active weather pattern will lead to scattered showers in all areas of the country, except the Southwest and portions of the lower Southeast. Five-day rainfall totals could reach 1 to 3 inches across the eastern Plains and the upper Midwest, while amounts should generally total less than an inch on the High Plains and throughout the East. Periods of rain and high-elevation snow will continue in northern and central California and the Northwest, where 1- to 3-inch totals can be expected.

Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for the likelihood of warmer-than-normal weather throughout the South and the lower Midwest, while below-normal temperatures should be limited to northern New England, the northern Plains, and the interior Northwest. Meanwhile, near- to above-normal precipitation across most of the country will contrast with drier-than-normal conditions in the southern Rockies and portions of the southern Atlantic region.
