Round one of severe weather is underway; round two will be bigger and badder tomorrow. Some areas will see a risk for flooding as well. Behind the storms, colder air will return and this weekend looks quite cold for March.
There will be two waves of severe storms west of the Mississippi through midweek, Wednesday's should be the worst. Parts of Kentucky may be re-soaked this week, too. After that, unseasonable cold will flood the Southeast.
It looks as though the potential severe storm threat will be one big story this week. The other will be a much colder air mass coming in later this week.
It looks as though the current round of soakings will mostly be beneficial going forward. We may not be so lucky next week and our first decent severe weather outbreak of the year may come at midweek. Unseasonable cold looks to hit late next week.
Another moisture-laden storm will cross the South over the weekend and cause more soakings and a few thunderstorms. Cold air will become more entrenched next week.
The next several days look unsettled and cooler than the last several. That is, unless you're in Florida, which will remain largely immune.
Starting tomorrow the weather will turn wetter and cooler across the South. Unless you're in Florida or along the Gulf Coast, I don't think you see persistent warmth again for a couple of weeks.
Things will stay mostly quiet across the South until Tuesday night when rains return to Texas. The rain and also some thunderstorms will spread into the Southeast. Later this week colder air starts pushing south again.
The rain will stay at bay through the first half of the work week, but we will see wet weather return later next week. Colder air is still going to try to push south late in the week, too.
Rains will continue to shift west over the next few days, after they quit for a while they will hit Texas to Kentucky next week. We still expect colder air to nead back in later next week.
