Tracking leftover showers and chilly temperatures

A low-pressure system will move across the Mid-South this weekend, giving us a cold rain today and some leftover showers for Sunday.

It has been a cloudy and wet day across the Mid-South. Highs have only reached into the upper to middle 40s with southeast winds around 5 to 10 mph. We are looking at widespread rain moving out of the region tonight as the system slides east of the area. Lows tonight will fall into the upper 30s to lower 40s with cloudy skies and northwest winds around 5 to 10 mph.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Leftover showers. Winds: Northwest around 5 to 10 mph. Low: 39.

TOMORROW: Mostly Cloudy. Few showers. Winds: Northwest around 5 to 10 mph. High: 43.

SUNDAY: Skies will remain cloudy for Sunday with some pockets of drizzle. Highs will stay in the lower 40s tomorrow with northwest winds around 10 mph. We are looking at lows falling near freezing Sunday night with mainly cloudy skies.

THE WEEK AHEAD: Highs will slowly rise as we push through the week ahead. Highs for Monday will stay in the lower 40s with mostly cloudy skies and lows will dip into the lower 30s. Partly cloudy skies are expected both Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the lower 50s and overnight lows in the 40s. Moving into Thursday we are looking at cloudy building ahead of next system, a small shower is possible late in the day Thursday but most will stay dry. Highs on Thursday will be in the middle 50s with lows in the 40s. We are tracking an increased rain chance Friday going into the weekend as our next weather maker moves into the Mid-South. We will see highs in the upper 50s and overnight lows in the 40s and 50s.
