A tranquil period of weather ahead for the Heartland
The remnants of Cristobal will continue to move northward across the Midwest, reaching Lake Superior early Wednesday. Meanwhile, a cold front will press eastward, generating widespread rainfall on the central Plains Tuesday and across the Midwest and East through mid-week.
Showers and thunderstorms will linger along the Atlantic Seaboard through Thursday. In the wake of Cristobal and the cold front, a period of tranquil weather will prevail nearly nationwide.
Late in the week, however, cool, showery weather will return across the Northwest. In contrast, little or no rain will fall during the next 5 days from central and southern California to the southern Plains.
Elsewhere, cool weather will replace previously warm conditions in the Midwest, while heat will return late in the week across portions of the nation’s mid-section.
Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for the likelihood of near- or below-normal temperatures east of the Mississippi River and in much of the West, while hotter-than-normal conditions will prevail on the Plains and along and near the California coast.
Meanwhile, near- or below-normal rainfall across most of the country should contrast with wetter-than-normal weather in southern Florida and the Northwest.
