MEMPHIS -- High pressure has briefly taken control leading to limited storm action on Friday with lots of heat. As the aforementioned high gets weaker on Saturday our rain chance will inch higher up. If I were you, I would treat Saturday like a classic summer day. What I mean by that is the day will start rain free but warm and muggy with temperatures in the 70s and 80s. During the afternoon we'll have enough heat, moisture and instability to spark a couple showers and storms; your rain chance is 40%. Sunday, we start what i'll be calling the “rain train” for the next few days. A weak cold front will be close enough to produce a high rain chance Sunday afternoon. There is a risk that a few Sunday storms could be strong or even severe with wind, rain and hail your biggest threat. Right now the set up doesn't scream severe weather but it's something to keep in mind. I should also mention that this cold front will not sweep clear across the Midsouth so don't get your hopes up about a major cool down. The front is the engine in this "rain train", then one disturbance after another will keep storm chances high, even at night, through at least Tuesday. Meanwhile, when/if it isn't storming on you, it'll be plenty hot with highs around 90° and lows in the 70s.
Have a great weekend!
