Winter Weather Moving In Monday Night

Winter Weather Advisory for northern Mississippi Monday night

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – Major changes will be moving into the Mid-South starting Monday night.

Sunday night will be mostly clear with temps in Memphis in the upper 40s around 7:00pm and the mid 40s around 10:00pm. Monday morning lows will be in the upper 30s in many spots.

Monday will start dry with increasing clouds through the day and a few isolated afternoon showers. Highs will warm into the upper 50s. Rain chances will quickly increase after 6:00pm with our next cold front. This front will cause a rapid drop in temps and rain is expected to switch to snow by late Monday evening. Snow will continue overnight before clearing out early Tuesday morning.

A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect for most of northern Mississippi and McNairy County, Tennessee overnight Monday. Areas in the advisory could see 1-2″ of snow, which will lead to hazardous travel conditions heading into Tuesday morning. Areas north of the advisory, including the Memphis metro, are expecting to see less than an inch of total snow, but slick roads will still be a concern heading into Tuesday.

Regardless of how much snow we get, it will be cold through the rest of the week. Temps Tuesday morning start off in the low 20s before warming into the low 30s for the afternoon. Wednesday will see similar temps. Thursday morning will start off with lows around 20 before warming into the upper 30s. Temps are quickly expected to warm into the 50s by the weekend ahead of our next chance for some showers.
