Lows tonight will drop into the mid 70s. A high-pressure system to the south of the area will help continue showers into the afternoon and evening hours. Scattered storms remain possible through next weekend. There will be enough instability out east to pose a threat for strong to severe storms east of the Central Mountains - focused over the northeast corner. Storms will gradually diminish once we reach sunset Sunday evening.
We start off with mostly cloudy skies across the Mid-South, with temps warming up to 84°; heat index: 87°.
Another round of storms will move across the state Sunday night through Monday morning bringing potential for heavy rain!
That said I am still going with about a 40% chance for pop-up showers and storms Sunday afternoon, especially for the areas that saw the heaviest rainfall on Saturday.
The week ahead will offer lower rain and storm chances just about every day, but the chance gets lower as the week goes along.
Thu: High: 90 Low: 71 Mostly sunny; scattered storms by afternoon/overnight. Some lake-effect, very stray showers could pop up on Saturday, but development will fight drying from the high pressure so chances are extremely low.
Rain chances remain high Tuesday but a ridge of high pressure building strength over North America and the upper air flow will shift and frontal boundaries will remain well north of the area.
