Northeast With the cold front offshore Monday, the region will be dry, except for showers near the Canadian border from Upstate New York to northern Maine. Breezy northwest winds will usher in cooler air with highs from the 50s and 60s from the mountains westward to generally the low and middle 70s from Down East Maine to Virginia. The region will be dry and for the most part sunny on Tuesday with high pressure in firm control. A moist easterly flow off the Atlantic could bring clouds and some rain to the southern Mid-Atlantic, especially the Delmarva and Tidewater Virginia, by Thursday and Friday.

South The cold front settles into the southern parts of the region Monday with only stray to isolated showers or thunderstorms possible. Thunderstorms become less numerous in western Texas. Locally heavy showers and thunderstorms could target central and southern Florida. Highs will range from the 70s across west Texas and from much of Oklahoma to North Carolina to between 85 and 93 around the Gulf. From Florida to the Carolinas, the week will steadily deteriorate as an upper-level low and moist easterly flow conspire to increase clouds and rain chances, especially along the Atlantic coast but possibly as far inland as the southern Appalachians.

Midwest From out of the West, showers and a few thunderstorms will begin to advance into southwest South Dakota, western and central Nebraska and western Kansas Monday while the remainder of the region will be dry under high pressure. Highs will range from the 60s in Michigan and the upper Ohio Valley to the 70s and perhaps near 80 in the Plains. From South Dakota and southwest Minnesota to Kansas, showers and thundershowers are likely Tuesday. This showery pattern will continue from Minnesota to Kansas midweek.

West From central Oregon and possibly central and eastern Washington to Wyoming and southward across Colorado and New Mexico, scattered thunderstorms are on tap Monday. Showers from a Pacific system will also begin to invade northwest Oregon and western Washington. Highs will range from the 70s and 80s across much of the Northwest to the 90s and low 100s in the Desert Southwest. The chance for showers and thunderstorms across the Rockies and high Plains go way down Tuesday while the rain turns steady across northwest Oregon and western Washington. The Pacific Northwest remains showery right through late week with showers and thunderstorms increasing across the interior by next weekend.
