Some strong thunderstorms will hit in parts of Texas and Louisiana tomorrow afternoon, the same storm system triggering those will bring some snow to areas from Kentucky to Delaware tomorrow night into Tuesday. The rest of the week looks mostly tranquil, except for some wet weather in Texas again Thursday into Friday.

There's no cold air in sight, not until at least next weekend; so the warm spell is going to continue for a while. The strong storm system out in California will move into the Plains Sunday and cause some severe storms and flooding rains in parts of Texas and Oklahoma.
A weak shot of chilly air has pushed in but it's pretty lame by February standards. It won't last long, either. A warmup starts Thursday and will expand east into the Southeast Friday through the weekend. The warm air is going to stick around for a while, too. It may be the end of the month before we see any real cold air coming down into the South again. It's too early to say winter's over, but it's very hard to get a big snowstorm down South once you get into March.
With mild air in place over most of the South, there is concern with a storm that's will move through over the next couple of days with severe thunderstorms rather than winter weather. Parts of Texas and the higher Appalachians will see limited amounts of snow, but that's it. No major cold is coming behind this storm. In fact, after a brief spell of somewhat chillier weather, the next several days look warm again.
Much of the Southeast will be chilly Saturday but warmer air starts to return on Sunday. The first half of next week looks warm. A storm going by to our north will pull a cold front through the region Tuesday into Wednesday which will cause some rain and potentially severe thunderstorms. The end of next week looks colder again but how well the cold penetrates is in question.
Aside from a little rain along a stationary front and in parts of Texas, the next few days look mostly quiet, warm south of the front and seasonably chilly north. A major storm system will affect the eastern two-thirds of the nation early next week and bring some wet weather and maybe even strong thunderstorms to parts of the South.
With a warming trend, it's looking quiet until a front moves in later this week. The front will stall for a while; it will stay warm south of the front while chilly air returns to the north. It still looks as though some sort of storm will ride along this front over the weekend to cause some snow and ice to the north, while it's just rain to the south with some thunderstorms possible.
After tonight's snow in parts of the Southeast, a relatively quiet week is ahead with not a lot of rain and very limited snow chances.
A potent but moisture-starved storm system will cause some mainly light snow over parts of the Southeast tomorrow into Monday. After that, it's looking quiet and seasonably chilly through about Thursday, when a more significant storm system will arrive in the southern Plains. From there, it will head east and produce mostly rain, but there can be snow and ice from Kentucky to the Delmarva.
