Tropical remnants of Florence will bring rain across the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast in the coming days as it ejects out of the Southeast.  In its wake, very warm high pressure will set up over much of the country this week with highs of 80s and 90s over the southern US and 70s and 80s over the northern US besides the cooler Northwest & N. Plains.  A weak system continues to bring scattered heavy showers over W. Texas for local cooling.   Overall, national demand will be a little stronger than normal for the last official week of summer due to 90s returning to most southern US states.  The first image shows highs Tuesday, highlighting hot late summer conditions over the southern US.  The second image shows temperatures versus normal averaged over the next 7-days with most of the US warmer than normal besides portions of the Northwest.   While warmer than normal over the Great Lakes to Northeast, temperature driven demand will be light.
