MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

It's another event-filled weekend in the Mid-South (click here for the full list) and there's a chance that rain could impact your plans.

Due to showers and cloudy skies, It will be much cooler this weekend with highs in the upper 80s and overnight lows in the lower 70s. Although rain is expected, this weekend is not expected to be a total wash-out. 

If you're going to the West Fight On event at Shelby Farms, the rain will hold off for the start of the race Saturday morning, but a few spotty showers will be possible after 9 a.m. Rain will not be widespread and there will be frequent breaks in the rain, so don't let showers keep you from going!

For those of you braving the crowds for Cooper-Young Festival on Saturday, I recommend bringing an umbrella or rain jacket, because scattered showers and storms are going to be likely through the early evening. 

It's time for Tigers football at Liberty Bowl Stadium! Rain will be possible during the 11 a.m. kick-off, but scattered showers will become more likely after half time on Saturday.

If you're heading to The Grove before seeing Ole Miss take on Alabama, take your rainboots! There is a 70 percent chance of rain at kick-off. A 50 percent chance remains until about 7 p.m.

Again, rain will not blanket the area the entire day, so there will be showers followed by several dry periods.
