A stormy pattern for the Nation’s mid-section

A cold front crossing the Midwest will continue to generate widespread showers and thunderstorms through Friday. A subsequent disturbance will result in some additional showers during the weekend across the nation’s mid-section. Five-day rainfall totals could reach 1 to 5 inches across the Midwest and the eastern Plains, but only light showers can be expected on the High Plains. Elsewhere, scattered showers will linger through week’s end in the Gulf Coast region, while dry weather will accompany a return to hot weather in the Far West. By the weekend, heat will again cover nearly all of the western U.S.

Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for the likelihood of warmer-than-normal weather nationwide, except for near-normal temperatures in northern New England and below-normal temperatures in the Pacific Northwest. Meanwhile, near- to below-normal rainfall across most of the country will contrast with wetter-than-normal conditions from the middle Mississippi Valley into the Mid-Atlantic region.
