7/9/2020 Weekly Forecast – The Heat is On!

That’s right, the heat continues this week. Basically the entire country is experiencing highs between 80-110 degrees as the U.S. continues to cook. The big deal heat pattern will continue next week, but there will be some breaks and rain. A little tropical storm system works its way up the East Coast and produces some severe weather in New York and Boston on Friday and Saturday. A weekend storm kicks up in Nebraska as well, producing some severe weather there and in Iowa.

The Southern Plains will continue to have scorching heat and drought conditions. Abnormally dry weather persists in the West, with New Mexico and Colorado being the hardest hit. However, there are many parts of the country that are dryer than normal right now. The good news is that some rain is expected in these areas over the coming days.

The Futurecast shows relatively widespread rain on Saturday and Sunday for the Midwest and Ohio Valley. Parts of that system stretch down to Atlanta to kick up some heavier rain there on Monday. Early next week a little trough system is expected to hover over the Northeast bringing some additional rain.

We can expect to see a new wave of heat pushing up from the South through the middle of the country next week. That air will split and cover most of the U.S. with much higher than average temperatures. In fact, we’re expecting highs to be even hotter next week than they were this week.
