A potent storm will dive through Texas early next week, sparking a new round of severe weather for millions of residents along the Gulf Coast.
This will be the same storm system which is expected to bring Up to 3 inches of snow to the Grapevine and parts of Southern California on Sunday.
This system will dive through the Desert Southwest on Monday before emerging in Texas on Tuesday.
Moisture from the Gulf of Mexico will interact with the aforementioned storm producing widespread showers and thunderstorms from San Antonio, Texas through Mobile, Ala., Tuesday afternoon.
With an abundance of cold air aloft, the stage will be set for a severe weather outbreak from Houston, Texas through New Orleans, La. and Pensacola, Fla.
At this point, the timing for the severe weather is a bit up in the air. But it certainly appears like either Tuesday night or Wednesday could feature the worst of the severe storms.
Large hail could be a big issue with the amount of cold air aloft, along with damaging wind gusts and a couple of tornadoes.
