A "Ring of Fire" weather pattern dominates...

For the remainder of the week, a stubborn ridge of high pressure will maintain hot, dry conditions across the drought-ravaged south-central U.S. However, tropical moisture will continue to wrap clockwise around the ridge, with heavy, “ring of fire” showers possible. A cold front crossing the northern half of the U.S. will further enhance rainfall in some areas.

Five-day rainfall totals could reach 2 to 4 inches in the Southeast and 1 to 3 inches in the western Corn Belt. Elsewhere, cool weather will prevail for much of the week in the West.

Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for hotter-than-normal weather nationwide. Wetter-than-normal conditions will be found in the Four Corners region, the Pacific Northwest, the upper Midwest, and the Gulf Coast region.
