A blocked-up weather pattern will lead to a storm moving very little over the next several days. It will cause some severe storms and it will tap into tropical moisture, leading to flooding rains as well. Meanwhile, most of the Southeast will continue to see nice weather for a while.
If you think it's cold now, wait until this weekend! Another cold blast is headed to the Southeast and some will see snow flakes. We'll get one more cold shot next week but that should be the last one.
In the Southeast, unseasonable cold will rule at times through this weekend, but the cold will be felt less back west of the Mississippi. Some areas will even see some snow before it warms up, likely for good, next week.
A lot of moisture is about to be pulled out of the tropics into Texas, Oklahoma and the Mississippi Valley, fueling thunderstorms, some severe, and with flooding rains. This slow moving storm will finally head east late in the week into this weekend.
