Northern Plains: Eastern areas will continue to see daily chances for showers through the middle of the week with showers waning later in the week with the return of high pressure. Through the weekend, a few systems from Canada may impact North Dakota. Temperatures will be near or below normal through the middle of the week with warmer temperatures returning later in the week and persisting through early next week.

Central/Southern Plains: Isolated showers and below normal temperatures will linger in the Southern Plains through the rest of this week as the trough across the Central U.S. slowly weakens. Conditions trend warmer by this weekend, but showers and storms may still linger, especially across southern Texas.

Midwest: Eastern areas of the region will see impacts from remnants of Tropical Depression Beryl which could provide severe storms and heavy rainfall. The rain may be wanted for some areas that have had drought conditions lately. Cooler air will persist through much of this week before temperatures increase by the weekend. Western areas will see some more appreciable breaks in rainfall later this week but systems from southern Canada could provide some scattered showers to the area this weekend into early next week.

Delta: A relief from the recent heat came this weekend with a trough in the Central U.S. providing cooler temperatures. Tropical Depression Beryl will move through central areas today, providing heavy rainfall which could exacerbate flooding for areas along the Mississippi. Some areas could end up being too wet by the middle of this week. Temperatures will be seasonable this week with warmth building across northern areas by early next week.

Canadian Prairies: Above to well above normal temperatures in western areas will expand east throughout the week with warm conditions likely persisting into early next week. A few rounds of rain may develop this weekend as a trough passes through the region. The drier and warmer combination is a good one for many areas that have adequate to surplus soil moisture and slower crop development.
