Severe Weather

Wet Pattern Eyes the Southern Plains and the Mid-South by End of the Week

8 months ago

The waning days of November are going to be dry for the majority of the South. However, a surge of moisture at the end of the week will usher in the threat of severe weather and flash flooding to the parched region. Here is what you can expect as the calendar flips from November to December across the southern Plains, the Gulf Coast, and into the mid-South.

High Pressure Will Provide Dry and Cool Start to the Week Across the South

It will be a nice start to the new work week across the south thanks to a large area of high pressure that is crawling across a zone stretching from Oklahoma and into northern Mississippi. As is typical, the area of high pressure is serving as a buffer from moisture to creep into the area.

This dry weather pattern in the South is in sharp contrast to the snow that blanketed parts of the Midwest and central Plains over Thanksgiving weekend. The flakes were flying in a large area with rain expanding as far south as Texas on Saturday.

Monday will bring temperatures that dip a bit below the average for the end of November into the south-central U.S. By Tuesday, this cooler than normal weather pattern will hit the mid-South. From the middle of the week onwards, you can expect the mercury to begin to inch up a bit.
