High pressure takes over the weather across the South for this week, leading to a long stretch of summery warmth and humidity. We won't see a lot in the way of rain through Friday at least, except in Florida where easterly winds bring in some Atlantic moisture. Another exception will be parts of West Texas and the Oklahoma Panhandle having some fringe effects from Rosa. Things start to change next weekend when a front will move into the southern Plains. It will be a slow-mover, so we will likely see areas west of the Mississippi getting a lot of rain next weekend and the first part of the following week. There will be some severe storm risks as well.
In the tropics, most of Rosa's effects will pass through the Southwest, through the Plains and into the Midwest, mostly missing us except for some spotty rains in West Texas. Sergio in the East Pacific is not a problem for now but may end up turning back toward North America several days from now. In the Atlantic, Leslie remains a 'fish storm' spinning over the middle of the North Atlantic, but swells from the storm will cause rough surf along the East Coast of the U.S. this week. I remain concerned for a Caribbean development causing problems for us in 10 days or so.

Michael and a strong, slow-moving cold front will combine to bring active weather to most of the South this week.
Simmering warmth and humidity makes a return this week.
Another stretch of summery warmth is about to get underway and it looks as though it will last for several days over much of the South.
