Tornadoes In The Plains, Tropics Busy

October 12, 2012; 11:30 PM

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.

    One front moving in is causing some rough weather in the Southeast today. Look for more big storms as another cool front moves in early next week, leading more unusual cool south.

  • Southeast Soakers and Texas Heat

    We're returning to more typical summertime weather with Texas hot and the Southeast steamy with spotty thunderstorms. The tropics remain quiet except for Wali's remains affecting Hawaii.

    The unusually nice weather in the Southeast won't last long. Meanwhile downpours will lead to flooding problems farther west the next few days.
