MEMPHIS, TN-- A windy Saturday is signaling change. A Wind Advisory is in place until 9 p.m. tonight with sustained winds around 25 miles per hour with higher gusts. A line of rain and embedded thunderstorms continues to head towards the Mid-South. Rain will arrive to eastern Arkansas between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. tonight. Arrival to the metro area will be between 11 p.m. and midnight. Rain will continue to press eastwards into our eastern counties through the 6 a.m. hour on Monday. Rain could be heavy at times and an embedded thunderstorms cannot be ruled out. The severe threat looks fairly unlikely with this system, given that it is arriving so late during the overnight hours. Areas south of I-40 would be the most likely area of seeing a stronger storm.
A few lingering showers will be possible into late morning on Monday, but conditions will improve quickly into the afternoon. Sunshine will break out Monday afternoon and will clear out altogether by Monday night. Temperatures are going to be shockingly different than what we've experienced over the weekend. Temperatures will fall behind the front into the 40's by 9 a.m. tomorrow. Temperatures will only be able to rebound into the lower 50's tomorrow afternoon. This will set the stage for a very cold night in the upper 20's and lower 30's Monday night.
Temperatures will be pleasant and will moderate some by Thursday and Friday. The extended forecast looks nice!
Have a great work week everyone!
