Two rounds of storms, then colder

A powerful storm system will bring a round of severe storms to parts of the South during the first part of the week, which will include a risk for tornadoes. A second storm will bring a less serious risk for storms later in the week. Behind the second storm, much colder air will move in for a while, and it looks as though it will stay cold through the first part of next week. Many areas will have their first frost and freeze of the season during this time. Out in the tropics, the Atlantic is quiet, and we still have Xavier in the Pacific, which is causing heavy rain in Mexico and will remain a source of moisture.

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.
