Wet weather will close out the work week in the central U.S. while heat and humidity broil the South and some of the East.

Midwest, Plains: Heavy rain and a few thunderstorms will soak the central U.S., all the way from Texas to the Great Lakes. Some flash flooding is possible, mainly in the upper Midwest.

Southeast: High heat and humidity and some scattered thunderstorms along the Gulf Coast will bring a summery feel to the entire region.

East: Humidity will slowly creep up the Eastern Seaboard on Friday, though the Northeast should see one last day of comfortable humidity levels ahead of a sultry weekend.

West: Most of the western third of the nation will be hot and dry Friday, though a few afternoon storms will dampen the Intermountain West, mainly in Utah and Idaho.

Weather history for Aug. 29: A killing frost ended the growing season in northern New England, part of the "year without a summer" that was possibly due to a volcanic eruption in Indonesia. In 1962, 22 inches of rain fell in Hackberry, La., a 24-hour state record.

In 2005, Hurricane Katrina made landfall near the Louisiana/ Mississippi border. It would kill more than 1,800 people and lead to more than $100 billion in damages, the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history.
