Sunday brings better air quality but more heat

A changing weather pattern means less ozone but more heat for Sunday.

Your weather has gotten back on track over the last two days; Memphis International Airport jumped to 90° this afternoon. Skies have been mostly sunny with a light wind as a ridge of high pressure sits right over us. Unfortunately that is the perfect recipe for high levels of ozone. An ozone advisory was in place earlier this afternoon for active children and adults and those who may have existing lung issues. Tomorrow through Monday we'll have a chance at storms and the wind will be moving around a bit that will lead to better air quality. Let's deal with Sunday first; it'll be a typical summer day with plenty of heat and just a few thunderstorms dotting neighborhoods. Monday, a cold front slides through bringing numerous showers and storms starting in the morning. A few of those storms may pack an extra punch of wind and rain but right now we're not overly concerned with severe weather. The front will move east of us by Tuesday bringing and end to the rain and some more comfort air; highs Tuesday and Wednesday will stay in the upper 80s. Our next chance at rain seems isolated Thursday and Friday, at the same time highs climb back into the 90s.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
