Severe weather for parts of the Mid-Atlantic this weekend?

It looks like a cold front with a strong upper trough will be swinging though the Carolina's into Virginia late Sunday night. This is a severe set up with a risk of tornadoes if this verifies.

For those in the know, it looks like this trough will not be as negativly tilted. Translation: Not as good a chance fro severe weather.

The models have flip-flopped again, although a little slower. It looks like there may be some severe weather in the Southeast with this next strong cold front.
