Cold front Monday brings rain/storms to Mid-South

Cold front Monday brings rain/storms to Mid-South

Parts of the Mid-South have a low-end or MARGINAL risk for a few severe storms Monday.

A cold front will push across the Mid-South late Monday into Tuesday. This will give us a chance to see scattered showers and storms throughout the day Monday. The main threat with any storm that develops is damaging winds. Other threats include heavy rain and frequent lightning. While the hail and tornado threat are not high, they are not quite zero either.

COLD FRONT ON MONDAY

Right now, models are hinting at a round of rain during the morning commute Monday, then more showers and storms in the afternoon once the cold front pushes east of the Mid-South. Make sure to have the rain gear handy as this line pushes across the region.

MARGINAL RISK FROM THE STORM PREDICTION CENTER

Once the storm system pushes east, we are looking at high pressure moving in, that will bring us sunny skies and north winds, meaning lower humidity is on the way along with cooler afternoon highs. Something to look forward to once we get the Monday cold front out of the region.

THREATS

MAIN THREAT: High Wind Gusts

TORNADO THREAT: VERY LOW but not totally zero

FLOOD THREAT: Flash Flooding is possible in heavy downpours

HAIL THREAT: LOW, dime size at best.
