Soggy in the Southeast this week and cooler in Texas

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.

Much of Florida remains chilly and damp for the first part of the week; later this week the weather will become active back in the southern Plains.

After parts of the Deep South get severe weather Sunday and areas farther north have cold rain and even snow, some rather cold air heads south next week.

A couple of storms will affect the South this week; both will cause heavy rain where it isn't needed.

Not much in the way of snow or ice across the South this week as warmth surges north ahead of approaching storms.
