A warm, but still wet pattern ahead for the Heartland


A warm, but still wet pattern ahead for the Heartland

A pair of slow-moving storm systems will maintain showery conditions in several areas, including northern sections of the Rockies and High Plains, the southern Appalachians, and the southern Mid-Atlantic States.

In the latter region, 5-day rainfall totals of 4 to 6 inches or more could trigger flooding. As the week progresses, showers and locally severe thunderstorms will erupt across the nation’s mid-section, where 5-day totals could reach 1 to 3 inches or more across the central and southern Plains. In contrast, mostly dry weather will prevail through week’s end in New England and the Southwest.

Late in the week, warmer weather will replace previously cool conditions across much of the central and eastern U.S.

Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for the likelihood of near- or above-normal temperatures nationwide, except for cooler-than-normal conditions in parts of Texas.

Meanwhile, near- or above-normal rainfall across most of the country should contrast with drier-than-normal weather across the interior Northwest and along the middle and northern Atlantic Coast.
