Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the MidSouth
National Weather Service Memphis TN
416 AM CDT Tue Jul 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Heat and humidity will return to the Midsouth for the next few days...with
an afternoon or evening shower or storm bringing some relief. Better
chances for rain will arrive Thursday night and into Friday...as a strong
cold front pushes south. Drier weather and cooler temperatures will then
be the rule through most of the weekend and into early next week.
