Hot weather roasts East Coast as heavy rain, flood threat grows for Southwest, Rockies

Written by on July 27, 2020

The hottest temperatures of the year will roast much of the East Coast on Monday as a flood threat goes out for the West from monsoonal moisture.

Heavy rain is possible over parts of the Southwest and Rockies over the next few days, which will cause additional flooding across the region.

Much of this heavy rain is due to the monsoonal flow, which is typical for this time of year.
