During the weekend, dry weather will return to the South, while showers will spread across the nation’s northern tier.
By early next week, a new storm system will develop across the nation’s mid-section, with significant precipitation possible across the Plains and Midwest. Meanwhile, temperatures will begin to recover, reaching near- to above-normal levels across much of the nation by early next week. However, cold weather will persist across parts of the northern U.S.
Elsewhere, wet weather in the Northwest could result in as much as 1 to 4 inches of precipitation, while little or no precipitation can be expected during the next 5-days from southern California to the southern High Plains.
The 6- to 10-day outlook calls for near to above-normal precipitation over the Heartland.
