Heat & humidity increase this weekend and so do our rain chances

Southerly winds bring warm moist air back into the Mid-South ahead of a series of upper level disturbances and a cold front moving east out of the Plains. This will bring a better chance of rain to the area for the end of the weekend and the beginning of next week.
