Heavy Rain & Storms Move In Tonight

The Mid-South is in a slight risk for severe weather later today.
MEMPHIS WEATHER--It will be a warm, breezy, and humid day in the Mid-South. Temperatures again will warm into the lower 80's and moisture will continue to surge northward on breezy southerly winds. Isolated showers are possible through midday as the heating of the day gets underway. Isolated late afternoon/early evening storms are possible west of the Mississippi River. Any storms that develop ahead of the main line of rain and storms will have the potential to become strong and/or severe. The Storm Prediction Center has outlined the Mid-South in a slight risk for severe weather.

A squall line packing heavy rain and storms will head towards the Mid-South late this evening. The leading edge of the rain will arrive to our eastern Arkansas counties between 9 p.m.- 10 p.m. Arrival time into the Memphis metro area is forecast for midnight- 1 a.m. Heavy rain will continue to push into the eastern part of the Mid-South through 5 a.m. Thursday.  The main threats from this line of rain and storms will be damaging wind, hail, and heavy rain that could lead to flash flooding. Some areas could pick up to 3 inches of rain by sunrise Thursday. Light to moderate rain will continue in the wake of the initial heavy rain through the early afternoon Thursday with clouds finally clearing out of the Mid-South by 9 p.m. Please remember to have your NOAA Weather Radio turned on this evening in case a warning is issued for your area.

Sunshine and cooler temperatures are on the way for Friday, but a nice warm up will arrive over the weekend. Have a great Wednesday!
