Two separate storms will affect the South through Monday then there is a potential big storm to deal with right before Christmas.
The weather pattern is turning to a wetter and stormier one. Eventually, it will get colder, too, but not for another week or so.
The situation is complicated and there is uncertainty but it look as though some good rain and even some snow late this week and this weekend for much of the South.
A storm moving into Texas and Oklahoma tomorrow will cause thunderstorms and some may be severe. There is a slight concern for severe weather Tuesday in the lower Mississippi Valley, too.
While we remain in a relatively tranquil setup, we will have one storm system to deal with starting Sunday and another next week.
Storms have consequences beyond their direct impacts. The storm up north this week will direct chilly air into the South and lock it in place for most of the week.
Down South, our weather will be mostly quiet for the next several days while the folks up north get nailed with a big storm and the West gets some welcome rain.
A storm coming out of the Pacific will cause a good soaking over parts of the South later this week. Meanwhile, there's no sign of any serious cold heading into the South for a while.
A storm now in Texas will lead to severe weather and soaking downpours across the South through tomorrow. We may have a Yankee Screamer storm to deal with by Wednesday, but much of the South will be quiet next week.
While a surge of warmth is coming, so is more cold air. With the warmth comes the risk for severe weather to parts of the South.
