An active setup continues through early next week

Cold fronts will continue to push in to the South and stall through this weekend and early next week. That will lead to continued wetter than usual and not as hot as usual weather. Some areas will see slow-moving downpours that lead to flooding again. But, it looks as though the weather pattern will change later next week leading to a hotter and less wet setup. Out in the tropics, the Atlantic looks to remain quiet for the rest of the month while the East and Central Pacific remains active.

It will stay quiet across the South until midweek, then a new storm will push through and cause a soaking rain and locally gusty storms over much of the Southeast again.

A storm moving in later this week will cause heavy rain that can lead to flooding, especially in areas that had very heavy snow this past weekend.

Heavy snow and ice is headed to the Carolinas and Virginia while the rest of the South sees soaking rain and thunderstorms.

A storm crossing the South this weekend will cause snow and ice in some areas and a potentially historic snowstorm in the North Carolina mountains and foothills.
