Cold air mass moving into the region from late week into the weekend

The focus then shifts to a low pressure that could develop near the northern Gulf of Mexico, tracking east-northeast across the region from Friday into Saturday. Depending on the track of the low, it could spread moisture into the subfreezing air mass across parts of the South & Southeast during this timeframe. As expected this far out, there is a lot of uncertainty and the models are disagreeing with the specifics; however, the pattern is favorable for the possibility of wintry precipitation from Thursday in central and south Texas, possibly spreading east on Friday into southern parts of Mississippi, southern Alabama, southern Georgia and Carolinas by Saturday.
