The Southeast will have a cold weekend while it's not bad for most places west of the Mississippi. A storm early next week has potential to cause snow and ice for some.
Cold air will rule the Southeast for a while with areas west of the Mississippi getting a glancing blow or outright warm. There is potential for a winter storm early next week.
The rest of the week will be cold and this weekend is looking very cold as arctic air moves in. With so much cold air available, there will be snow to talk about, too. West of the Mississippi, warmth will hold on in many areas.
Here's an update on the severe storm and tornado risk for the first part of the week. Behind the stormy weather, it will turn colder again.
A powerful storm will bring severe storms to parts of the South though the first part of the workweek, then much colder air arrives behind the storm. Opportunities for snow and ice will follow.
Warmer air will spread over the South this weekend and early next week while a powerful storm forms over the Southwest. This storm will cause a severe weather outbreak over a large part of the South next week, including tornadoes.
