Northeast - Saturday will feature widely scattered thunderstorms from Upstate New York to the Middle Atlantic region, but much of New England and the I-95 corridor will remain dry. The region misses out on the heat of other regions with Saturday highs mainly in the 70s. Sunday will be dry across the region with mild temperatures. Warmer air does return to the region by Tuesday and Wednesday with highs well into the 80s for many. Dry and pleasant weather holds on for much of the region until late next week.

Midwest - Hot temperatures and dangerous heat indices from the central and southern Plains through Missouri Saturday. Highs in these areas will range from the upper 90s to around 100 degrees. Heat indices could exceed 105 degrees under the heat dome. Highs mainly in the 80s from Minnesota to Michigan and down to the Ohio Valley. A sharp cold front will dip temperatures from the 70s to the upper 50s across western and central North Dakota. Thunderstorms, some with heavy rain that can produce localized flooding will occur around the rim of the high pressure ridge from the Dakotas to the Ohio Valley. Some thunderstorms will turn severe for the eastern Dakotas into western Minnesota and northeast Nebraska on Saturday. Large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes are possible. Storms continue to plague the Plains and Upper Midwest on Sunday.

South - Much of the region will have to deal with more heat and humidity on Saturday with dangerous heat indices as the strong upper ridge remains anchored in the lower MS Valley. Highs mostly in the 90s for much of the region, but highs around 100 degrees from Texas to Tennessee. Cooler 70s to 80s over Virginia and northern North Carolina. Showers and thunderstorms across much of Kentucky, eastern Tennessee and from Virginia through the Carolinas as a back door cold front moves in. Some isolated thunderstorms along the Gulf Coast to the Florida Peninsula. Most of the rest of the region will be dry. Cooler temperatures push into the southern Appalachians and Georgia on Sunday as thunderstorms chances increase with the back door cold front. Storms push into Mississippi and Alabama on Monday with cooler air overspreading much of the Southeast.

West - A strong late August trough brings widespread rain and storms to the northern Rockies this weekend. Heavy rain and localized significant flooding is possible for parts of Montana, Wyoming and Idaho through Sunday. A widespread 1-3 inches rain will fall with localized 3-5 inches+ possible in the state of Montana. A shot of much colder air will move down across the northern Rockies Saturday. Highs will only be in the 40s and 50s from western Montana to northwest Wyoming. Some higher elevation of western Montana and northwest Wyoming could pick up a little snow this weekend. Mainly dry across the Desert Southwest but high humidity levels will keep temperatures under 100 degrees across most areas. Scattered thunderstorms will also occur across parts of Utah and western and northern Colorado. The Pacific Northwest will remain very warm and dry. Highs in the 80s to near 90 in the Pacific Northwest Saturday. Highs in the 80s from the Colorado Front Range down through New Mexico. Highs in the 70s along the immediate West Coast. Tropical systems in the eastern Pacific will result in higher surf and a rip current threat along the beaches of Southern California for several days.
