More cool, wet weather, then a change...

For the weekend, heavy rain and local flooding can be expected across the southeastern Plains. By early next week, rain will shift across the Mid-South and into the Mid-Atlantic States. Storm-total rainfall could reach 2 to 4 inches, with locally much higher totals, from the southeastern Plains into the Mid-Atlantic region.

In contrast, mostly dry weather will return to the Southwest. Dry weather, accompanied by a warming trend, will also prevail from the northern Plains into the upper Midwest.

Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for near- to above-normal temperatures across much of the U.S., while below-normal rainfall across much of the eastern one-third of the U.S., including the eastern Corn Belt.

Locally, rain chances are increasing again, especially Saturday into Sunday.
