The USA is experiencing diverse and extreme weather: floods in Florida, a heat wave incoming, and cold in the Northwest with potential snow in the Rockies. The Midwest is facing severe storms and flash floods. Montana and the Dakotas are expecting strong storms, while the Gulf Coast is anticipating heavy rain. Meteorologist David Roth cites an amplified weather pattern. The Northwest has thunderstorms, and Idaho has frost warnings. Phoenix reached 111°F; cooling centers helped over 5,000 people. Florida may still experience flooding due to saturated soil. Atlanta is nearing 100°F, and El Paso is also hot, with cooling centers open.

Despite Arizona’s monsoon season, dry conditions are expected most of the week. The upper Midwest is dealing with excessive rainfall from an atmospheric river, especially impacting Minnesota. Events like Tennessee’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival have attendees coping with hot weather, with some needing medical attention for heat-related issues. Next week, the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions could see record-setting temperatures in the mid-to-upper 90s. Parts of Montana are under winter storm watches, with potential wet snow and concerns about hypothermia and impassible roads due to snow and fallen trees. Overall, the United States faces a wide range of extreme weather events, from heat waves to unexpected snowfall, all driven by an amplified weather pattern.
