For those of you along and east of the Rockies and south, still a nice weekend is expected. The only exception will be in the northern Plains and Upper Midwest where a system will be passing through delivering a chance for some chilly rains. The rest of us, especially those of us along and east of the Mississippi River, will see quite a bit of sunshine. In addition, we will see some nice warming temperatures. By Sunday afternoon, the 60 degree temperatures will reach as far north as Kansas City and through the Carolinas into south-central Virginia. The warming will continue into the beginning of next week along and south of I-40. Monday we will likely see temperatures making into the mid 70s across much of southern Texas with even 80s popping up near the Mexican border. In fact, 70s will be possible along and south of I-20 from Shreveport to Birmingham and southeastward through southern Georgia and into Florida.
But the nice weather won't last for to long. Several storm systems moving quickly will move on shore in the West and move east. The first will do so Friday into Saturday and begin delivering rain and storms to the Plains on Sunday. A few strong and possibly severe storms are possible Sunday night into Monday across east Texas. On Monday, the storms will impact the Arklatex and by Tuesday move into the central Gulf Coast.
Additional storm systems will then be eying the Pacific Coast and moving east providing more storminess late next week.
