Temperatures will gradually start to rise this weekend in the South, including Texas

The storm that brought rain, snow and freezing rain is slowly moving offshore.  

There are still some lingering snow showers, though, for the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Lake effect snow will also be an issue with accumulations of 4 to 8 inches possible.
