After basking in spring-like temperatures for the better part of the week, the string of nice weather across the Southeast will come to a screeching halt later Thursday and into Friday.

The same upper level low causing wintry weather in Texas moves into the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday night, and it will spin back moisture from Houston to Atlanta for most of Friday.

A widespread 1-2″ of rain will make Thursday and Friday a washout along the Gulf Coast and as far north as Huntsville, Alabama and Tupelo, Mississippi. The same storm will morph into a Nor’easter off the Atlantic seaboard on Friday night, potentially leading to the first significant snowfall of the season for the Northeast.

On the northern fringe of the system, light snow and sleet will mix in from Little Rock, Arkansas to Nashville, Tennessee. Up to an inch or two of snow could accumulate in Tennessee, Arkansas and upstate South Carolina on Thursday through Friday, however, temperatures across most areas even where snow does fall are expected to stay below freezing. Black ice could be a concern along I-40 in particular Friday night.
