Tracking more rain and storms to end weekend

Showers and storms will again impact the Mid-South as a disturbance continues to push across the region.

Showers and storms are rolling across the Mid-South this morning, and we are going to keep with scattered rain chances in the forecast throughout the day and into tonight. A low-pressure system and associated cold front are causing our rain and storms today, some of those storms could pack a punch with gusty winds, small hail and heavy rain with lightning again for Sunday. Highs will remain cooler due to the rain and clouds, only warming into the lower 80s with southwest winds around 15 mph. The bulk of the rain and storms will push out of the region tonight, but a few leftover showers are still possible. Lows will dip into the 60s with partly to mostly cloudy skies and winds shifting out of the north around 5 to 10 mph.

TODAY: Mostly cloudy. 60% rain and storms. Winds: Southwest around 15 mph. High: 83.

TONIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy. 10% rain and storms. Winds: North around 5 to 10 mph. Low: 66.

THE WEEK AHEAD: Partly to mostly cloudy skies will prevail for Monday with isolated shower chances, highs will warm into the middle 80s with east winds around 5 to 10 mph and lows will dip into the upper 60s to lower 70s. Tuesday and Wednesday we have a bit of an unsettled pattern, with increased rain and storm chances along with highs back into the upper 80s and overnight lows in the lower 70s. Some storms could be stronger Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, something we will watch closely this week. Drying out as high pressure moves back into the region to end the week ahead. Thursday, Friday and Saturday are all looking dry with highs soaring back into the upper 80s to lower 90s with overnight lows in the lower 70s under partly to mostly sunny skies.
