Showers and thunderstorms will extend from the Northeast to
the mid-Mississippi Valley and central Plains tomorrow. Some
of these storms could produce locally heavy rainfall and
lead to flooding in low-lying and poor drainage areas. This
rain, however, will bring an end to the intense heat across
much of the eastern two-thirds of the nation as temperatures
return to more normal values. Across the South, spotty
thunderstorms will clip portions of the lower Mississippi
Valley. These storms are not expected to bring widespread
flooding issues. Across the West, the peak of summertime
heat will envelop much of the West Coast. Sea breezes will
keep areas within 30 to 50 miles of the coast much cooler
and more comfortable. Some record highs could be broken
across California's Central Valley.
