Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the MidSouth
National Weather Service Memphis TN
440 AM CDT Sun May 28 2017

.DISCUSSION...

An upper level disturbance moving across the Lower Mississippi
Valley may result in the redevelopment of showers and thunderstorms
across the Mid-South later this afternoon into tonight, especially
along and south of I-40. Chances for showers and thunderstorms will
linger south of I-40 on Memorial Day as the front stalls out across
the region. Highs this afternoon and on Memorial Day will be in the
lower to middle 80s.

Upper level disturbances will bring shower and thunderstorm chances
across the Mid-South for much of the week into next weekend. Highs
will be in the 80s with lows in the 60s to lower 70s.
