A multi-day, severe weather setup will bring the risk of strong thunderstorms that could contain large hail, damaging winds, heavy rain, and isolated tornadoes from the Rockies along the Southern Plains and into the Southeast.
The severe weather is very likely to impact central Texas on Monday.
Parts of Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida also have a good chance of being impacted by severe storms.
Some areas could experience flash flooding throughout the week.
Communities along the Alabama-Georgia border could see up to 8 inches of rain through Saturday, while most of those states and portions of Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, South Carolina, and northern Florida are forecast for 3 to 5 inches.
The Great Lakes and Northeast will get some much-needed rain over the next few days to help with the drought and help clear out the smoke from the Canadian wildfires.
Meanwhile, triple-digit, record-breaking heat will bake central and south Texas.
On Friday, temperatures are forecast for a high of 104 degrees in San Antonio, 103 in Dallas and 100 in Houston.
High heat indices will make it very difficult and dangerous to be outdoors.
