Memphis--A warm front to our south is making very slow northward progress tonight. Steady to rising temperatures will be noted across the southern half of the Mid-South. The northern counties will experience showers and t-storms after midnight. Some storms may contain hail, but damaging winds and tornadoes are not threats with the system. The night time storms will move south and affect the Memphis Metro area after sunrise through the early to mid afternoon hours Friday. The storms will weaken some as they head south. Friday evening, the warm front will begin to rapidly move north of the Mid-South in response to a deepening area of low pressure in the plains. The result will be a mostly dry Friday evening and a dry, breezy, humid and very warm Saturday. The tight gradient across the Mid-South Saturday will bring gusty winds to the area. By Sunday morning a line of storms will move into the Mid-South. Some gusty winds are possible with the line along with lightning and heavy downpours. The line should push through rapidly and by mid afternoon the Mid-South will return to mostly dry and warm conditions. Monday and Tuesday will remain seasonable and dry. Another cold front will arrive Wednesday bringing a chance for rain followed by cooler temperatures Thursday.
