MEMPHIS – (localmemphis.com) The coldest air of the season continues to sit on top of us tonight. It all matters where you are when talking about how cold you’ll get. Cities, you’ll dip into the mid/upper 30s; suburbs: 30°-35°, outlying areas: 25°-30°. A freeze warning is in effect for much of west Tennessee except for Shelby County. A frost advisory is in effect from Shelby County west into all of eastern Arkansas. Mississippi, we haven’t forgotten about you. If you live in or west of Desoto County, you have a frost advisory. If you’re in Marshall County or anywhere east of there, you have a freeze warning. This is the type of cold that can damage or kill sensitive veggies. To be safe, no matter if you have an advisory or a warning, bring the plants in. Fast forward to 9am Saturday, we’re done with freezing for a while. Highs Saturday afternoon will pop into the low and middle 60s under mostly sunny skies. High pressure stays in control through at least Tuesday morning. That means dry and steadily warming conditions for you; Monday’s forecast high is 73°. Our next chance at rain comes in the Wednesday to Friday time frame. The details are still a little iffy at this point as the system hasn’t formed yet and there’s a timing disagreement in our computer models. Stay tuned!
