An active weather pattern is forecast to make a return to the Mid-South starting this weekend, lasting through the middle of next week.


What you need to know

As mentioned above, rain chances will increase on Saturday and Sunday. On top of that, a strong storm or two cannot be ruled out, especially on Saturday. 

The overall risk is low with hail and wind gusts being the main concern. 

It is possible that a severe weather risk is present with Sunday rain chances too but we will need to see how data continues to pan out over the next 24 hours to validate that thinking.

Rain chances do not stop on Sunday. In fact, there is an active weather pattern that is setting up for the next week across the region. This will keep rain potential slightly more elevated than usual for this time of the year.

Even as we head into next week, a few strong to severe storms cannot be entirely ruled out. While rain chances will be elevated, this won't be a washout week but make sure to stay weather aware. This is the time of the year when more people are active outside or are on vacation.
