An active, stormy week ahead will be followed by chill

Two major storm systems will affect the South this week, and both will have the potential to cause severe weather including tornadoes. For much of the region, it will be a warm week but behind the second storm system, we will have much colder air push in; next weekend looks chilly for most. Out in the tropics, the Atlantic is quiet, while we have Xavier in the Pacific. Xavier will stay out over the Pacific but has the potential to be a moisture source.

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.
