Some Bad Storms Tonight, a Few Tomorrow, Too

October 17, 2012; 3:45 PM ET

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.

Paul is falling apart near Baja California while Rafael is pulling away from Bermuda into the North Atlantic.

    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.

    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.
