Warming Into The 80's Today

A breezy southerly wind will help push temperatures into the lower 80's this afternoon.
MEMPHIS WEATHER--It's a very mild start to our Tuesday across the Mid-South. Breezy southerly winds continue to push warm, moist air into the region. Isolated light showers will be possible before noon today, but the majority of the area will stay dry with a mostly cloudy sky. Temperatures will warm into the lower 80's this afternoon, but no records will be broken. The record high temperature on this date in Memphis is 88 degrees previously set in 2011.

Temperatures tomorrow will again warm to near 80 degrees ahead of a potent storm system to arrive to the Mid-South. The Storm Prediction Center continues to outline the Mid-South in a slight risk for severe weather Wednesday. Isolated storms will develop Wednesday afternoon, mainly west of the Mississippi River. If storms reach severe limits, the primary severe threat will be damaging winds. However, large hail and isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out. Late Wednesday night, an intense line of heavy rain and strong storms will work west to east through the viewing area. The leading edge of this line will be the most intense and is expected to arrive in the Memphis metro area Wednesday night around midnight. Rain will continue for much of the day Thursday, but the severe threat will begin to diminish. Sunshine and cooler temperatures are expected for Friday and into the weekend.
