Ring of Fire......when a high near Bermuda sits and moisture moves clockwise around the high pumping moisture from the Gulf up across the East as you can see on satellite - radar pix above. This pattern will not change any time too soon. So best weather Northern Plains. Below...today's risk of severe weather in ark green.
Below - animated maps for the next 2 days followed by amounts of rain for the next 5 days.
Lastly....satellite of tropics....still a possible tropical disturbance in Gulf which will get absorbed by the flow and head north. Be safe.
