Unseasonable warmth ahead of a front that is moving through Thursday and Saturday will lead to some severe weather to deal with. At this point, I don't think the South will have many tornadoes to deal with, but there can be a few of them; damaging wind will be a threat. Behind the front will come a turn to more typical February temperatures. The Appalachians will even see some snow, though likely not a lot. The chilly air won't hang around long, though. A big surge of warmth is coming early next week with a potentially bigger severe weather event.
