The weekend is looking very nice in the Southeast, but it looks windy and warmer ahead of a front that will push southward into areas west of the Mississippi starting Saturday. The front will cause some severe weather in the Plains Saturday and Saturday night, then probably a few bad storms in the Arklatex and points south Sunday. After that, the severe threat diminishes as the front pushes east into the Southeast early next week but it won't fall to zero.

Several more hot days are ahead in Texas while the weather pattern continues to favor fronts to push into the Southeast and keeping the heat from getting out of hand for most places. In the tropics, the only feature of interest is near Florida while East Pacific critters are staying well out to sea.
Hot high pressure aloft will hold on over Texas and adjacent states through the weekend. Fronts will continue to push into the Southeast and stall.
The heat goes on in Texas while other areas see a break at times over the next week. Florida is getting a nice soaking that is generally wanted and needed.
West of the Mississippi the heat gets worse this weekend while farther east it's not too bad. Get ready for soaking rains in parts of Florida. Heat will expand east again soon.
The heat has backed off a little back in Texas but it comes back even worse the rest of the workweek into the weekend. In the Southeast, the heat is easing and the break will continue for a while.
The heat won't ease any time soon in Texas but the Southeast will be catching a break. The tropics remain mostly quiet.
