Cooler, less humid days ahead...

During the next 5 days, excessively hot and oppressively humid conditions will persist across the south-central and southeastern U.S., while progressively cooler and less humid air will overspread the central Plains and the Midwest.

Little or no rain will fall in the Far West and the drought-devastated south-central U.S. However, most other areas—including the northern and central Plains, Midwest, and East—can expect 1 to 2 inches of rain, with locally higher amounts.

Meanwhile, most forecast guidance suggests that Tropical Storm Emily will turn away before reaching the U.S. mainland although a weekend landfall along the southern Atlantic Coast cannot be completely ruled out.

Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls wetter-than-normal conditions from the northern Plains to New England, including the Midwest.
