Another upper trough developing over the eastern part of the nation will send fronts unusually far to the south for this time of year, leading to cooler and more unsettled weather for most of the South. The reduction in heat will be very welcoming in Texas, which has been roasting. Unfortunately for most of the Southeast, fronts moving in will stall and attract tropical moisture, which will result in another wet spell and the potential for flooding. Speaking of the tropics, the Atlantic remains quiet while the Pacific is getting more active again.
