NATIONAL SUMMARY

An area of high pressure will slide eastward and bring dry
and mainly sunny conditions to the Northeast tomorrow.
Humidity levels will slightly lower across the region, but
will still hold strong across the Southeast. Spotty
thunderstorms could pop-up amid the humidity across the
Tennessee Valley and Florida. The most numerous showers
and storms will focus on the central portion of the nation.
Localized flash flooding is possible where storms have hit
for consecutive days. Storms will be very spotty, but
locally drenching in nature across the Four Corners region.
Much of the Western states can expect a dry day with some
sunshine. A shot of cooler air is forecast to move into the
Pacific Northwest, ending a couple days of record heat.
