Winter storm moving out, a warmer storm late week

As of Sunday night, our winter storm in the Southeast is pulling away, taking heavy snow, ice and rain with it, but a couple of weaker disturbances lingering will keep parts of the Southeast damp or icy through Monday. Areas farther west stay quiet until at least Wednesday with a warmup. At midweek, a new storm will start to take shape in the middle of the nation. There's some question on exactly where this storm will track, but I think there will be another strong storm affecting the South later in the week. It will be a warmer storm with not a lot in the way of snow, but it will cause a soaking rain and thunderstorms. The severe storm risk looks to be low but not zero. The primary concern will be for flooding, especially in areas that have seen the heavy snow and ice this weekend.

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.
