Midwest - Hot temperatures dominate the region Monday and Tuesday with highs generally in the upper 80s and 90s. Dew points in the 60s and lower 70s will make it feel very humid and add to the discomfort of the heat. Heat indices, a combination of the temperature and humidity, should be in the 90s and lower 100s throughout the region. Given the relatively cool summer thus far this bout of heat and humidity should feel worse than usual. A strong cold front pushes into the hot and humid air mass sparking scattered severe thunderstorms in the northern Plains Monday afternoon. Monday night the severe thunderstorms should push through the eastern Dakotas, Minnesota, northwest Wisconsin and northwest Michigan. Tuesday the threat of severe thunderstorms extends from northeast Iowa to Michigan. Damaging wind gusts, hail and isolated tornadoes are possible.

Northeast - Northern parts of the region should be mostly dry except for a stray shower or thunderstorms in parts of Upstate New York and western and central Pennsylvania. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected across Virginia and much of West Virginia. Stronger storms may contain heavy downpours that could lead to flash flooding. Conditions should be fairly similar Tuesday with northern areas dry and scattered showers and thunderstorms in the Virginias. Some showers and thunderstorms may spread into Maryland and Delaware Tuesday. High temperatures reach the 80s in most areas. Cooler 70s should be confined to eastern New England, central and western Virginia and eastern West Virginia.

South - Unsettled conditions continue across the Southeast as an upper level low meanders around the region. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely in the Southeast and Florida with isolated thunderstorms along the Gulf Coast Monday. - Tuesday the scattered shower and thunderstorm activity is likely from the Mississippi River eastward. Stronger thunderstorms are capable of producing gusty winds and torrential downpours both days. Flash flooding is possible in and close to the heavy downpours. High temperatures should be mostly in the 80s across the South and Southeast both days. Some spotty lower 90s are possible where thunderstorms do not occur with some 70s where they are more persistent. Hot and dry conditions occur west of the Mississippi River both days. High temperatures reach the 90s with some spotty lower 100s, especially Tuesday afternoon in Oklahoma and Texas.

Westt - Hot temperatures with highs in the 90s to lower 100s occur from Montana to southeast California, Arizona and New Mexico through Wednesday. Even hotter temperatures with highs of 105 to 125 are expected in the Desert Southwest all three days. The only natural cooling would come from isolated afternoon and evening thunderstorms, which are most likely in and around the mountains of Colorado and New Mexico. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are forecast from northern California to Montana Monday, in interior Washington and Oregon, northern Idaho and Montana Tuesday and the Northwest Wednesday. Cooler temperatures are expected in the stormy areas with highs mainly in the 70s and 80s.
