Severe weather will be the main weather worry for us this weekend. Spotty storms in West Texas overnight will spread east into Oklahoma and North Texas tomorrow. The worst of the tornado threat looks to be Saturday afternoon and night spreading east into Arkansas. The area between the Tennessee and Ohio Valleys appears to be the main area of concern for Sunday (though severe storms can hit north and south of there, too). Even on Monday, there can be some big storms from the Virginia Tidewater south to the Grand Strand ... farther west if the front ends up being slower than the models are showing.
The good news is that this storm crossing the eastern part of the country over the weekend will keep newly-formed Rafael well east of the East Coast. Unfortunately, it could be another hit for Bermuda.

We will be dealing with drenching rain and severe storms through this weekend before things settle down. A cooler setup is coming next week too.
There is some light at the end of the tunnel now, but it looks wet across much of the south until this weekend.
The weather pattern will favor wet through this weekend. At least it's not still cold, but we may see some late chill next week.
We're still on track to see a lot of rain over much of the South this week. There will be some severe storms to deal with as well but the heavy rain threat is the bigger story.
The weather pattern favors wet for the next several days, although many will enjoy a nice Sunday and Monday. Flooding will become a concern for many areas next week.
High pressure will bring a nice weekend to much of the Southeast but southern stream storms will pull a lot of moisture into Texas. The rains will spread back into the Southeast next week.
