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.
