Wide-ranging weather across the Nation

Hot weather will continue indefinitely in the Northwest, but near- or below-normal temperatures should prevail in many other areas of the country. In fact, significantly below-normal temperatures can be expected across the Plains and Midwest. Meanwhile, a series of cold fronts will produce scattered showers across the northern Plains and Midwest before reaching deeper moisture and resulting in locally heavy downpours across the South and East. Five-day rainfall totals could reach 1 to 4 inches across the South, East, and lower Midwest. In the Four Corners States and environs, monsoon-related showers could total 1 to 3 inches or more. Mostly dry conditions will persist, however, in the Pacific Northwest.

Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for the likelihood of below-normal temperatures across a large swath of the country, particularly between the Rockies and Appalachians. Hotter-than-normal conditions will be limited to the Far West, as well as Florida’s peninsula and Deep South Texas. Meanwhile, below-normal rainfall in Arizona and from the Pacific Northwest to the northern Plains should contrast with wetter-than-normal weather elsewhere, including the central and southern Plains and much of the South and East.
