A near-seasonal pattern of warmth, rainfall ahead for much of the Heartland
Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for the likelihood of near- or above-normal temperatures and rainfall across much of the country. Cooler-than-normal conditions will be confined to portions of the Great Lakes region.
Meanwhile, drier-than-normal weather should be limited to the northern High Plains, the Northwest, and portions of the south-central U.S. In parts of Louisiana and Texas, extreme heat will accompany the below-normal rainfall.
