Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the MidSouth
National Weather Service Memphis TN
456 AM CDT Fri Jun 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Rain showers and a few thunderstorms will continue across the
Mid-South through this evening as the remnants of Tropical
Depression Cindy move across the region. Locally heavy rainfall
will be possible with this activity and may result in flash
flooding.

Rain chances will begin to taper off overnight. Dry conditions
are anticipated over much of the weekend as a cold front moves
across the area in the wake of Cindy`s departure. Expect high
temperatures in the low to mid 80s Saturday and Sunday with
overnight lows primarily in the 60s. Temperatures will gradually
trend upward through the middle to late part of the upcoming week
with dry conditions continuing through Wednesday.
