Late-season warmth and generally dry conditions are expected across much of the central and eastern U.S. this week. Rain is occurring in the northern Plains, while dry conditions are making room for winter-wheat planting and harvesting in the southern Plains.

Scattered showers are expected in the southeast, with more than 1" possible locally. Wetter-than-normal conditions are anticipated in Texas and areas from the Mississippi Valley to the northern Mid-Atlantic.
