NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MEMPHIS TN
610 AM CST FRI NOV 28 2014

.DISCUSSION...

HIGH PRESSURE WILL SHIFT EAST ALLOWING FOR SOUTHERLY WINDS TO DRAW
IN WARMER AIR FOR THE WEEKEND. SKIES WILL GENERALLY BE CLEAR TODAY
AND TONIGHT WITH GUSTY WINDS ALONG AND WEST OF THE MISSISSIPPI
RIVER. HIGHS TODAY WILL RANGE FROM THE UPPER 40S TO MID 50S.

FOR SATURDAY AND SUNDAY...CLOUDS WILL BE ON THE INCREASE STARTING
TOMORROW...WITH A CHANCE FOR ISOLATED SPRINKLES ACROSS THE WEST AND
NORTH. BETTER CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION WILL OCCUR SUNDAY AND MONDAY
AS AN ARCTIC COLD FRONT PASSES THROUGH THE REGION. LIGHT RAIN MAY
CHANGE OVER TO FREEZING RAIN OR FREEZING DRIZZLE MONDAY AS
TEMPERATURES QUICKLY FALL BEHIND THE FRONT. GUSTY NORTHEAST WINDS
WILL ADD TO THE COLD WITH WINDCHILLS IN THE TEENS AND 20S.

DRIER AND WARMER WEATHER WILL RETURN TO THE MIDSOUTH LATER NEXT WEEK.
