An early-season heat wave ahead, centered on the Midwest Corn Belt; stormy on the Plains

A cold front currently crossing the Ohio Valley will temporarily knock down Midwestern heat. 

However, late in the weekend into at least the middle of next week, daily high temperatures will soar into the 95- to 100-degree range across the southern and eastern Corn Belt, with similar readings expected across the central and southern Plains.

In contrast, cool weather will prevail across the northern Plains into the far upper Midwest, with high temperatures expected to remain below 60°F early next week in much of Montana. 

Active weather will develop near the boundary between cool and hot air, with 5day rainfall expected to reach 1 to 3 inches or more across the northern and central Plains and upper Midwest. 

Meanwhile, an area of low pressure is expected to form over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico during the next few days, with tropical moisture likely spreading toward or reaching the U.S. Gulf Coast.
