Dry and very warm to hot conditions will cover the Midwest and Plains Monday. We'll also see a dry pattern in the Canadian Prairies, with the only area of rain over the southeastern U.S. The heat and dryness will tax crop conditions, especially in the western and northern Midwest, where rainfall has been hard to come by over the past six weeks.

Highs: 80s Prairies, central and eastern Plains, Midwest, Delta, Deep South, Southeast; 90s remainder of the Plains through Texas, some 100s south Texas.
