We’re talking rain this weekend.

Today: grey, drizzly, periods of showers, kind of gloomy.

Tomorrow, Sunday, is the big rain story. This is when the MidSouth can expect heavy rain a a few thunderstorms. The Storm Prediction Center has placed the western portions of the News Channel 3 viewing area in a MARGINAL risk for strong storms and excessive rainfall for late Sunday afternoon and evening.

For now, we’re waking to warm temperatures in the mid to upper 50s and lower 60s – and these are forecasted to be our highs as well! There’s mist and drizzle occurring and we will keep the low clouds present all day. A warm front will support the opportunity for shower activity throughout the day but nothing severe. The bulk of the rain and stormy activity should hold off until later Sunday.

Today: Patchy drizzle with a chance of showers before noon, then a chance of showers, mainly between noon and 4pm. Cloudy, with a high near 64. Calm wind becoming north around 5 mph in the morning. 

Tonight: A slight chance of showers before 9pm, then a slight chance of showers after midnight. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 54.

A surface cold front will move through the area on Sunday bringing rain and the chance for storms. Showers could start as early as the afternoon with chances increasing by the evening. Heavy rainfall/downpours are possible with stronger storms that develop. Strong damaging winds/gusts look to be the primary threat at this time.  Locally heavy rainfall could lead to localized flooding, especially in poor drainage areas.

We’ll briefly dry out Monday and Tuesday afternoon before our next shot of rain arrives midweek.
