An active, stormy pattern returns in the new week across the Heartland
Through the weekend, several minor disturbances will result in widespread but generally light precipitation in several regions, including the Plains and Midwest.
By early next week, however, a complex storm system will become better organized across the western and central U.S. Heavy precipitation may fall in the Pacific Northwest, while a low-pressure system will intensify across the nation’s mid-section.
By Tuesday, dry weather will return across the Northwest, while windy, unsettled conditions will engulf the northern Plains and upper Midwest, with accumulating snow possible. Locally severe thunderstorms may sweep across the South.
Five-day precipitation totals could reach 1 to 3 inches or more across the South and Pacific Northwest, while mostly dry weather will persist from California to western and southern Texas.
