Five-Day Weather Forecast 

Friday: Chance for a morning shower, then partly cloudy.

Sunday: Chance for mainly morning showers.

Monday: Partly cloudy and mild.

Tuesday: Increasing clouds and wind. Rain and storms develop overnight.

Forecast Discussion & Concerns

Our Thursday night system weakened as it moved into our area, which limited rainfall amounts to around a trace for those lucky enough to get those isolated showers. The next storm system will move in Satuurday night, with rain and wind. Some of us may even hear a rumble of thunder. That system looks to move out Sunday morning. All of us should pick up around one inch of rain with that.

The next storm system will move in Tuesday night. That system may bring the risk for some strong storms, as this system will have very mild air to work with and a more unstable atmosphere. The best chance for severe storms looks to stay to our south, but I will monitor that closely. Much colder air will follow that system.

Pictured below is the Storm Prediction Center’s storm outlook for the next 8 days. The green shading on us for Saturday (Day2) is for the risk of a non-severe t-storm Saturday night. Notice the highlighted area for severe storms on Tuesday (Day5) across the Lower Mississippi River Valley. That threat extends into West Tennessee. That’s a system I’ll track eastward into our region.
