Memphis Weather--Temperatures will complete their slide tonight into Monday as a blast of arctic air brings one of the coldest mornings this winter to the Mid-South. We are currently experiencing the longest stretch of days without falling into the teens at Memphis International Airport since records have been kept. As of Thursday, the number stands at 720 days. While we will get close Friday morning, the streak will likely continue with lows only falling into the low 20s. It will still be a cold morning and day so bundle up!
Fortune is on our side and the cold spell will be short lived. Saturday morning a weather system may arrive in time to bring light freezing rain for a couple of hours, but temperatures will warm above freezing quickly changing any freezing rain to rain. Moisture with the system is also fairly light and travel should not be affected. By Saturday afternoon, temperatures return to around 50 degrees. Sunday will be warmer and sunny with highs reaching the upper 50s. Next week temperatures will become steady with highs in the 50s and lows in the upper 30s to low 40s.
