Largely dry, “quiet” weather ahead for the Heartland; tropical Atlantic “active”

As Hurricane Fiona heads toward Atlantic Canada, the tropical depression currently crossing the Caribbean Sea will become a named storm. 

By early next week, the tropical cyclone—likely at hurricane intensity—may pose a significant threat to Florida’s peninsula, although there is still considerable forecast uncertainty. 

Across the remainder of the U.S. mainland, generally tranquil weather will prevail for the next 5 days. Outside of Florida’s peninsula, any rainfall totals greater than an inch should be limited to portions of the Great Lakes region.

In fact, completely dry weather will prevail during the next 5 days in most areas from the Pacific Coast to the Plains.

Any lingering extreme heat will be confined to the Deep South, mainly in the western Gulf Coast region, while the coolest weather—relative to normal—should prevail in the Midwest and Northeast. 

Periods of frost may affect the North, especially across the northern Plains and upper Midwest.
