IMG_5999 (1)Heavy rain and flash flooding will affect parts of the Midwest and the East Coast early in the week while dangerous summer heat will return to much of the country as well.

The National Weather Service predicts thunderstorms and heavy downpours up and down the East Coast, while “potentially record-setting heat” will return to the south and the Northeast.

The Northeast will see highs on Monday ranging from 97° F (36° C) in Washington, D.C. and 90° F (32° C) in New York City, while Dallas is expecting to see the mercury reach 103° F (39° C).  The service doesn’t expect the heat to linger as much as it did in July, however.

The agency is calling for “elevated fire conditions” in portions of the West with dry weather and elevated temperatures.

The forecast for Palm Springs and Death Valley calls for a high daytime temperature of 116° F (47° C) in the coming week, with nighttime lows hovering around 80° C (27° C).
