Weather

Much cooler days ahead, centered on the Corn Belt

The remnants of Tropical Storm Beta will drift generally northeastward and continue to weaken, although additional Southeastern rainfall could total 3 to 5 inches or more.

Meanwhile, a series of cold fronts will cross the Midwest, generating scattered showers. Some of the most significant rain, 1 to 2 inches over the next 5 days, should fall in the vicinity of the Great Lakes.

Farther west, mostly dry weather will continue during the next 5 days from California to the Plains and middle Mississippi Valley. In the Northwest, however, frequent showers—especially west of the Cascades—should provide relief from a dry summer and aid wildfire containment efforts.

Aside from a surge of cool air into the Northwest, much of the country will experience near- or above-normal temperatures during the next several days.

Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for above-normal temperatures in southern Florida, New England, and areas from the Pacific Coast to the High Plains, while cooler-than-normal conditions will cover much of the eastern half of the country.

Meanwhile, near- or below-normal precipitation across most of the U.S. should contrast with wetter-than-normal weather from the Great Lakes region to the northern and middle Atlantic States.
