Well above normal temperatures are expected from the Southeast through Texas, the Southwest, much of California, and into the northern Intermountain West. Isolated to scattered mixed wet and dry thunderstorms will develop across the central Great Basin, West Slope, southeast Arizona, and much of New Mexico. Hot, dry, and breezy conditions are likely across portions of west Texas and the Desert Southwest, away from thunderstorms. Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms, including severe, will develop along and ahead of a cold from the Colorado and southern Rockies into the eastern Great Lakes, while more showers and thunderstorms are expected for the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys through the southern and central Appalachians into the Mid-Atlantic. Warm temperatures are forecast for much of Interior Alaska, with widespread showers over western Alaska.

A Red Flag Warning remains in place near the Flat Fire. The Storm Prediction Center has issued an elevated fire weather area for the four corners.
