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.

TD4 is the main item of interest now, I expect it to be a near miss for the Southeast Coast but that's not guaranteed. Meanwhile, cooler air is pushing into the Southeast while the heat hangs on for a while longer west of the Mississippi.
Two videos tonight, one for the tropics and especially the Atlantic situation. Meanwhile, the heat is about to get beaten back some in the Southeast while areas west of the Mississippi keep baking.
The heat in Texas and Oklahoma will expand east this week and there can be lots of rain in the battle zone between it and cooler air up north. Meanwhile, we have several tropical critters to watch.
Here comes another cool front that will get way farther south than it should in August. The front will cause more rain and storms. There are a few interesting things in the tropics, but it's quieter down there than before.
A stationary front will cause soaking rains in the Southeast for a while. South and west of the front, it's rather hot, especially in Texas. Another front arrives next week with cooler and drier air.
Heat is building back in Texas and Oklahoma but will get beaten back in much of the Southeast as a front moves in and stalls. The stationary front will give some of y'all a lot of rain, but details are uncertain.
