MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A late November cold front will bring rain and storms tonight and there is a low end risk for severe storms tonight & early tomorrow.
The Storm Prediction has placed Eastern Arkansas and areas just east of the Mississippi River in West Tennessee and North Mississippi under a marginal risk tonight. The main threat with any storms that may become severe will be strong gusty wind.
The threat will shift eastward and will include most of the Mid-South by morning with the main threat remaining strong gusty wind.
A few showers possible tonight but the threat for storms will arrive after midnight while most of us are asleep.
Areas of scattered showers and storms will continue around 6 AM in Eastern Arkansas and will start to track east of the Mississippi River.
It will likely be a wet and possibly stormy commute for many areas across West Tennessee and North Mississippi for the morning commute.
Rain will start to move out by the afternoon and temperatures will begin to drop as colder air will move in behind the cold front.

Although the front will be exiting off to the east, winds will stay on the strong side into the afternoon. Winds will finally start to relax by Wednesday evening.
Rain totals could be around a half inch for most but there may be a few higher amounts especially with areas that pick up heavy rain from any potential thunderstorms.
