Tropical troubles this week

Tropical systems will lead to soaking rains in parts of the South through the first part of the week. Parts of Texas, Louisiana and Florida will see the the worst of the rain. The developing storm moving into Florida tonight has a chance to gain strength once it reaches the Gulf of Mexico and then heads toward the Gulf Coast. Farther west, a weak tropical low pressure area will cause the heavy rains back in Texas and Louisiana. Areas not affected by these two features look to remain hot and muggy with not much in the way of rain through this week.

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.
