Quieter for now and hotter, but cooler and wetter again late week

Seasonable heat, humidity and afternoon thunderstorms will be the rule over most of the South for the first part of the workweek. But, later in the week, another front will move in from the north and get farther south than usual for this time of year, leading to a wetter and cooler setup again. I don't think we'll have the crazy amounts of rain like we did the last couple of times this happened, though. It looks as though we'll continue to have more fronts push well to the south at times as the month wears on. Out in the tropics, the Atlantic remains mainly quiet, while it's become very active in the East Pacific with concerns for Hawaii and the Mexican Riviera.

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.
