A Moderate Risk For Severe Storms Today

A Moderate Risk For Severe Storms Today

Damaging winds, large hail, and isolated tornadoes are possible this afternoon and evening.
MEMPHIS WEATHER--The Mid-South will start the day on a quiet note, but will end it much differently. Currently, a Wind Advisory is in effect for the Mid-South until 1 a.m. Friday with sustained winds between 25 and 35 miles per hour. Heat, humidity, and a breezy southerly wind will lead to a very ripe and unstable environment for storms to strengthen this afternoon. Isolated storms are possible after 2 p.m. today. Meanwhile, a line of heavy rain and embedded storms will head for the area. The leading edge of this line (typically the strongest part of the line) will arrive to eastern Arkansas between 4 p.m. -5 p.m. The metro area can expect the leading edge of the line to reach the area between 6 p.m.-8 p.m. Eastern counties in the Mid-South can expect the arrival of unsettled weather around 9 p.m.  Again, the arrival times above are estimated times and residents should monitor changing weather conditions through the afternoon. Please be aware that dangerous weather could impact your area during the evening rush hour commute.  We encourage the use of NOAA weather radios and creating a severe weather preparedness plan for your household if a warning is issued.

The heavy rain and storms will exit the Mid-South after midnight and cooler air will dive into the area. Clouds will clear out of the Mid-South Friday morning and temperatures Friday will be much cooler. Highs tomorrow will only top out in the upper 50's and lower 60's. The weekend looks beautiful and temperatures will be back into the lower 70's by Sunday.
