It looks as though the front crossing the middle Mississippi Valley will be able to cause some severe storms tonight after all. That could include some tornadoes. The front may also trigger a few bad storms toward the East Coast tomorrow as well.
The good news is that it looks mostly quiet for a while in the wake of the front, and the air mass behind the front doesn't look terribly cold ... and will mostly be aimed at the eastern part of the country, so it will warm up again quickly in Texas.

Once our soaking rains finally end in parts of the Southeast, it will be time to focus on severe storm threats over the next week or so.
A storm getting organized in the Gulf of Mexico will bring a ton of rain to parts of the Southeast with a few severe storms, too. It will be gone for Easter as a new storm arrives in the Plains.
A couple of cold nights are ahead in the Southeast while temperatures moderate farther west. A couple of rain makers are coming through this weekend.
We will see one more stormy day tomorrow, affecting the East Coast, before the current storm system moves away. Very cold air for April is moving in behind it and will cause a freeze far to the South.
The net storm system to push through the Southeast will bring another round of severe storms and some heavy rains for some areas. Behind it, a shot of some serious cold will be coming south.
Some dangerous weather will affect much of the South through tomorrow with a ton of rain for some areas and severe thunderstorms causing tornadoes in other places.
