Western heat to settle on to the Plains

A cold front crossing the Midwest, and eventually the Mid-Atlantic, will continue to generate widespread thunderstorms through Saturday. A subsequent disturbance will result in additional showers early next week across the nation’s mid-section. Five-day rainfall totals could reach 1 to 4 inches across the Midwest and the eastern Plains, but only light showers can be expected on the northern High Plains. Elsewhere, showers will linger through week’s end in the Southeast, while dry weather will accompany a return to hot weather in the Far West, as well as southern Texas. 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 the Pacific Northwest. Meanwhile, near- to below-normal rainfall in most of the country will contrast with wetter-than-normal conditions from the middle Mississippi Valley into the Mid-Atlantic region.
