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.

Brief weekend warmth in the Southeast will be replaced by cooler air again next week. Thanks to the fronts bringing the cool air south, Florida will stay wet.
Cool air nosing into the south will give some a nice and cool weekend, while others will be stuck under a front and get soaked. There are a few things to watch in the tropics but no imminent threats.
Some tropical features will affect the South in the coming days. I don't expect anything too serious except that moisture from them will lead to some soaking rains, especially where they interact with the front moving in.
A front will move into the South and stall, bringing rain and storms for many but those fortunate enough to be north of the front this weekend will have enjoyable weather.
Wind and rain will continue in eastern Virginia and Delmarva through tomorrow. Meanwhile, heat building again in Texas will be carried east ahead of the next cool front, which will cause some heavy thunderstorms.
A few more hot days are ahead but another shot of cool air is about to push into the South. Tropical excitement remains confined to Texas and the Southwest for the next several days.
