MEMPHIS, TN--Drier air will make its final push through the rest of the Mid-South this evening. This will mean the end to lingering showers that have been stubborn to leave the eastern section of the area today. Clear skies tonight and light winds toward sunrise will result in a much colder evening. Lows in urban areas will drop into the lower 40's while more rural areas will find lows in the mid to upper 30's. Tuesday may start off chilly, but a quick warm-up will occur in the afternoon. Breeze southwesterly winds will help temperatures climb into the lower and middle 60's by the afternoon.
Wednesday will be the warmest day of the week. A strong southwest flow will crank up the heat out ahead of a cold front that will bring rain to the Mid-South Wednesday night. Temperatures will top out in the upper 60's before clouds become a hindering factor. At this time, rain looks to overspread the Mid-South from west to east after dinner time Wednesday. The heaviest rain will occur overnight. Fortunately, the timing of this event should not support a significant severe weather risk. Rain will wrap up by 6 a.m. Thursday morning. Temperatures will take a big dive during the day Thursday, falling into the 40's by the afternoon. The cool snap only last for 48 hours before another warm up begins next weekend.
Have a great Monday evening everyone.
