Some cities in the Dakotas and upper Midwest that experienced triple digit heat on Monday will cool into the 90s on Tuesday. The heat the region experienced Monday will move into the central Plains and Ohio Valley, where temperatures in the 90s and 100s will be possible from Kansas and Nebraska through Ohio and Michigan.

While the Central Plains and Ohio Valley may experience the hottest temperatures in the country Tuesday, well above normal temperatures are expected into the Northeast where 90s are likely as far north as New Hampshire. New York City may see some temperatures in the upper 90s Tuesday afternoon.

Meanwhile, a low pressure system will drift down the West Coast, producing normal or below normal temperatures for the Pacific Northwest and California. This feature is also likely to instigate rain and some thunderstorms through the Intermountain West and Montana. In addition, monsoon moisture will continue to stream into the Southwest, producing scattered showers and thunderstorms as far north as Colorado.

Lastly, a low pressure system will move through the Dakotas, producing moderate to occasionally heavy rain.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Monday ranged from a morning low of 35 degrees at Truckee, Calif., to a high of 104 degrees at Chamberlain, S.D.
