Briefly Cool

Although a cool day on top for the region, the heat will be quickly moving back into the region.  Yet, this time the heat is somewhat associated with a pattern change.  A trough of low pressure, think of it as a dip in the jetstream will be occurring in the Pacific Northwest forcing some heat into the northern plains for a few days, but beyond that, the upper-level wind should shift more to the southwest, the wettest flow for this region.  In turn, I still feel we will see a week to 10 days will a few storm complexes moving through the region.  Will it resolve the dry issues, no, but at least should keep with my projections of August being the wettest month of the summer.
