Heavy Rain and Thunderstorms in the Deep South and portions of the east coast

A low pressure system will keep conditions wet and cool through mid-week in the Upper Midwest. High pressure over the west will shift east allowing cooling along the coast, and intensifying the heat for the interior Pacific NW and Great Basin. Read More >
