Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the MidSouth
National Weather Service Memphis TN
223 PM CST Fri Dec 14 2018

.DISCUSSION...

A slow-moving upper level low pressure system will bring chances of
rain to the Midsouth through Saturday evening. Although, the rain
will not be nonstop as a dry slot associated with the upper low
will move into portions of the Mid-South today into the early
evening hours. In locations that do receive rain, a few
thunderstorms could occur as well during the afternoon hours.
Highs will remain in the 50s.

High pressure will build into the area for the latter part of the
weekend. Expect dry conditions with highs in the mid 50s.

The high will remain over the area through the middle of the week.
By Wednesday night, chances for rain will begin to occur again as
a cold front and upper level disturbance approach the area.
