Quiet through early next week; another potent storm late week

The weekend ends with a storm moving away from the East Coast and high pressure bringing quiet weather to areas farther west. We will remain quiet until midweek. After that, another potent storm system will take shape over the eastern part of the nation and bring another soaking to parts of the Southeast that doesn't need any more rain. Once again, parts of Florida will have a limited severe storm risk, and this may extend northward along the East Coast. Colder air coming in behind the storm will lead to some areas having some snow Thursday into Friday on the back side of the storm. Relative quiet returns for a few days behind this storm.

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.
