Over most of the South, it's feeling more like April or May than late February. The warmth will feed severe storms for some along a cold front moving through on Friday. The weekend will be cooler but only back to near average for late February and it will warm up again next week. Another front will move through during the middle to late part of next week with more storms, potentially more serious in terms of severe weather. After that, it will get cooler again and this time it will stay cool to chilly for a while.

The front causing storms in the Midwest down into Kentucky and Tennessee on Friday will bring some severe weather to the mid-Atlantic coast on Saturday. Behind it, a cooler air mass will move in for a couple of days, but we warm up again early next week. Next week looks active with a series of weak storm systems moving in and moisture from the tropics becoming more available. Another front will move through at the middle of next week with more severe weather. Behind that front we get cooler air to stay for a while, though.

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.

It will remain quite warm across the South this week. With a a springlike air mass in place, storm systems that move through will cause springlike storms. A cold front moving through at the end of the week will lead in cooler air for the weekend for most. Don't expect the cool air to stick around long, though.

There's no cold air in sight, not until at least next weekend; so the warm spell is going to continue for a while. The strong storm system out in California will move into the Plains Sunday and cause some severe storms and flooding rains in parts of Texas and Oklahoma.

A weak shot of chilly air has pushed in but it's pretty lame by February standards. It won't last long, either. A warmup starts Thursday and will expand east into the Southeast Friday through the weekend. The warm air is going to stick around for a while, too. It may be the end of the month before we see any real cold air coming down into the South again. It's too early to say winter's over, but it's very hard to get a big snowstorm down South once you get into March.

With mild air in place over most of the South, there is concern with a storm that's will move through over the next couple of days with severe thunderstorms rather than winter weather. Parts of Texas and the higher Appalachians will see limited amounts of snow, but that's it. No major cold is coming behind this storm. In fact, after a brief spell of somewhat chillier weather, the next several days look warm again.

Much of the Southeast will be chilly Saturday but warmer air starts to return on Sunday. The first half of next week looks warm. A storm going by to our north will pull a cold front through the region Tuesday into Wednesday which will cause some rain and potentially severe thunderstorms. The end of next week looks colder again but how well the cold penetrates is in question.

Aside from a little rain along a stationary front and in parts of Texas, the next few days look mostly quiet, warm south of the front and seasonably chilly north. A major storm system will affect the eastern two-thirds of the nation early next week and bring some wet weather and maybe even strong thunderstorms to parts of the South.

With a warming trend, it's looking quiet until a front moves in later this week. The front will stall for a while; it will stay warm south of the front while chilly air returns to the north. It still looks as though some sort of storm will ride along this front over the weekend to cause some snow and ice to the north, while it's just rain to the south with some thunderstorms possible.
