Following severe flooding in Florida, many states are preparing for a heat wave, while the Pacific Northwest faces cold weather and possible snow in the Rockies. Severe thunderstorms and flash flooding may occur from eastern Nebraska to northern Wisconsin. Strong storms are expected in eastern Montana and the Dakotas. Heavy rain is predicted for the central Gulf Coast due to tropical moisture. Forecaster David Roth links this diverse weather to an amplified weather pattern. The Northwest has had thunderstorms and hail, with frost warnings in northern Idaho. Phoenix reached 111°F, with cooling centers helping over 5,000 people. In Florida, heavy rain is less likely, but local flooding remains a risk due to saturated soil. The southern U.S. is heating up; Atlanta is nearing 100°F, leading to the opening of cooling centers and event postponements. El Paso also faces high temperatures, with cooling centers open daily.

Despite monsoon season, Arizona expects dry conditions for most of the week. An atmospheric river in the upper Midwest is causing excessive rainfall, especially in Minnesota. The Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee saw attendees braving the hot weather, with medical teams treating heat-related issues. The Mid-Atlantic and New England will see temperatures in the mid-to-upper 90s next week, possibly setting records. Parts of Montana are under winter storm watches, with wet snow possible into Monday night. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather watch for north-central Idaho and western Montana, warning of hypothermia risks and impassible roads due to snow and downed trees. In summary, the U.S. is facing extreme weather events, from heat waves to unexpected snow, due to an amplified weather pattern.
