Southern Plains to simmer, last break from the heat for a while in the Southeast

Hot and dry weather has returned to Texas and that will expand over the next couple of days. Meanwhile, another front will push into the Southeast. This will bring much of that area a cooldown and a return to unsettled weather. This will be the last break for a while, though, as the hot air over the nation's midsection will expand eastward next week. The worst goes 'over the top' but the Southeast will still simmer. In the tropics, the Pacific is getting more active again while the Atlantic stays quiet for at least a week. But, a couple of tropical waves will play a role in the weather across the South over the next week.

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.
