.DISCUSSION...

Skies are clear and winds are calm early this morning, allowing
efficient radiational cooling to drop temperatures into the mid
20s in parts of west TN, with low 30s over the MS Delta where dew
points are a bit higher. High pressure will continue to settle
over the Midsouth today, resulting in abundant sunshine and high
temperatures peaking in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Near normal
lows continue tonight, but Thursday into Friday will be a bit
warmer with high temps near 60 and low temps above freezing.

By Friday night rain chances begin increasing from west to east,
as southerly flow and associated isentropic lift returns to the
region. Most rainfall will occur on Saturday and Saturday night,
with storm totals of about half an inch to an inch. Only showers
are expected and will continue to mention no thunder in the
forecast.

Another air mass with Pacific origins will move into the region
Sunday, and as a result temperatures will only nudge back down to
near normal. Dry weather is expected through the middle of the
week, with a return of winter looking more likely by late week.
