Don't expect the heat to stay around for too long

As explained in our last two video updates, much needed rain is moving across the Corn Belt today and tomorrow. A weak low-pressure system will develop as it moves out of Nebraska and heads toward the Great Lakes. This will bring rain to regions that have been quite dry over the last two weeks (and to some regions that have been dry since June in Iowa). The cooler temperatures we have seen over the last two weeks will hang on for a few more days, but warmer than average temperatures will show up again across the Great Lakes states by the end of the week and again next week. However, due to a very active jet stream, don't expect the heat to stay around for too long.
