More showers and storms on the way

The Eastern corn belt cools down to slightly below average temperatures, while another ridge builds in the Central Plains. It'll be a drier week for all of the corn belt, but there will be a line of scattered showers and storms running North to South through the North Central Plains today that will try to spread East through the middle and end of the week. These storms will be hit or miss across the corn belt. By the end of the week, strong southerly flow under a large Central US ridge will let 90-degree temps spread through the Great Plains. Watch mid-week next week for the next chance for significant, widespread rain and more storms.
