Weather Outlook

Convective development will continue across the eastern half of the Alaskan Interior with the primary focus being the southeastern Interior.

A breezy westerly flow pattern will develop across the Pacific Northwest and the Northern Rockies as a weak system begins to bring scattered showers to northwestern Washington by late afternoon.

While most of the West will remain dry with seasonal temperatures, the southwestern monsoon will remain somewhat active across New Mexico.

In the East, the remnants of Tropical Storm Barry will slowly begin to move east across western Tennessee and Kentucky. Moderate rainfall is expected to continue in these areas.
