The South-Central U.S. saw warmer temperatures the past few days, but that's about to change with a cold front rolling in. The recent unseasonably high temperatures are on the verge of giving way to wetter conditions by the end of the week.
One More Day of Record-Breaking Warmth
The Southern U.S. has enjoyed a remarkable surge in temperatures this week, but it's not lasting long. A new weather system is preparing to unleash moisture and usher in notably cooler temperatures to the region. Widespread rainfall is expected, extending from Texas into the Tennessee Valley, with a heightened risk of flash flooding in low-lying areas.
However, the region still has one more day to bask in the record-breaking warmth and dry conditions caused by a high-pressure system currently centered over the Gulf Coast. However, this high-pressure zone is forecasted to shift east and ultimately move out to sea on Wednesday, ushering in a more unsettled weather pattern.
