MEMPHIS--A weather system will bring scattered showers to the Mid-South Sunday night. Rain amounts will be light with most areas receiving less than a tenth of an inch. Cloud cover should last long enough to prevent patchy frost from developing Monday morning. Clouds will thin Monday and dry weather will prevail Monday & Tuesday with temperatures becoming a little warmer each day. Tuesday morning with a clear sky and light winds, there may be some patchy frost that develops just before sunrise. Cities closer to the Tennessee River and the valleys in NE Mississippi have the greatest potential for frost Tuesday morning. A weakening cold front will arrive late Tuesday night. A few showers are possible with the front Tuesday night into early Wednesday. Temperatures behind this system will not drop significantly as with the last front that arrived this past Friday. In fact, Wednesday's high temperatures will be similar to, to a degree warmer than, Tuesday's. By Thursday evening a surge of warmth will arrive from the south. As this happens a few showers will occur Thursday night into Friday. Temperatures by the end of the week will see highs in the low 80s and lows much milder in the low to mid 60s. The weekend will stay unseasonably warm with highs in the 80s. There will be a slight chance of showers Saturday night into Sunday.
