Weather pattern favors warmth for a while

It won't be warm all the time, but the weather pattern will favor warmth most of the time for the next several days. The chilly shots that we do see will be aimed down the Plains and into Texas, then toward the Southeast; parts of Oklahoma and Texas will have some cold days here and there along with the potential for some ice and snow. On the other side, most of Florida will remain very warm for at least the next week, and it will feel nearly summerlike. Those visiting Florida from the North will definitely call it summery! It won't be as active as the last week has been, but there will be several good chances for rain except in the Florida Peninsula and around the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles; however, other parts of West Texas and western Oklahoma will stand to have one or two good chances for rain.

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.
