Memphis--A clear sky and light wind Saturday morning will combine with a cold air mass to produce freezing temperatures across the Mid-South. In the city of Memphis temperatures will fall to around 30 Saturday morning. Outside of the city, it will be even colder with lows in the mid to upper 20s. Saturday afternoon will feature plenty of sunshine, but temperatures will remain unseasonably cold with highs only reaching the mid to upper 40s.
Saturday night will be cold again with many areas falling below freezing. A light south wind Saturday night will strengthen Sunday bringing milder weather to the area by Sunday afternoon. Dry weather will last through Sunday night.
Monday morning light showers will develop mainly west of the Mississippi River. Showers will spread eastward Monday afternoon. Rain will become heavier and more widespread Monday evening and the atmosphere will become unstable enough to produce a few t-storms. However, no severe weather is expected with this system.
Rain will continue through Monday night, ending early Tuesday. Clouds will slowly clear Tuesday afternoon. Behind the wet weather temperatures will only be slightly cooler due to the Pacific nature of the air mass.
Wednesday and Thursday will remain dry with slightly above normal temperatures in the low 60s returning by Thursday. Clouds will increase Friday and there may be a light shower late in the day.
