The details are still in question, but it looks as though we're going to see a big storm along the East Coast again this week. Behind the storm, a traquil and warmer period is coming up and it could get quite warm in Texas. When another big storm comes out of the Rockies next Sunday or Monday, it could cause some severe weather, feeding on warm and moist air surging north ahead of it.
By the way, happy birthday, Dad!

In the southern Plains the threat for flooding rain continues into the weekend before finally shifting east. The Southeast could use the rain but let's hope it's not too much of a good thing.
The weather pattern will remain favorable for wet but maybe not as wet weather in the Southern Plains while the Southeast gradually moistens up. Time to take a peek a the tropics again, too.
A minor change in the upper level pattern will give the southern Plains a brief respite from the heavy rains, which will shift to the east somewhat. Eventually, we'll moisten up much of the Southeast as a result.
Subtle changes over the next few days will lead to the worst of the rain and storms to shift east a little for a while. That's good because the southern Plains have had more than their fair share.
More soaking rains and severe storms are coming to Oklahoma and Texas in the coming days, while parts of the Southeast are barely able to buy a drop.
The setup remains favorable for wind, hail and flood producing thunderstorms to hit Texas and Oklahoma. Meanwhile, the Southeast will stay relatively quiet through this weekend.
