(This evening through next Friday)
Issued at 121 PM CST Sat Dec 2 2023

A cold front appears to have stalled, or slowed to a crawl from
near Parsons, Tennessee, to near Oxford, MS. Showers continue
along and ahead of this boundary across northeast Mississippi and
near the Tennessee River in west Tennessee. It may move a bit
farther east this afternoon, but it will not get a real push out
of the Midsouth until later tonight as next shortwave currently on
the lee side of the Rockies approaches the Mississippi River.
Will maintain low chance PoPs this afternoon and overnight.
Showers may even increase in coverage again this evening or
overnight as the next shortwave approaches.

A series of transient surface highs will move across the eastern
CONUS tomorrow and during the upcoming work week. As a result,
dry conditions return to the Midsouth Sunday and should continue
through at least Friday. Two weak troughs and associated cold
fronts are expected to move across this week. One on Tuesday and
again on Thursday. Moisture along or ahead of these systems will
be very limited, so rainfall is not expected. Temperatures may
cool slightly, but no extreme changes in airmass are expected. Any
freezing temperatures will be most likely Wednesday and Thursday
mornings. High temperatures through midweek will be mostly in the
50s, with some 60s returning Thursday into the weekend.

Guidance is in poor agreement, but we may see a chance or rain
return to the Midsouth next weekend.

from the northeast at 5 to 10 knots this afternoon before
gradually backing to the west at 5 to 10 knots overnight. Some
patchy areas of fog may develop overnight but unless winds are
lighter than expected, fog is not expected to develop at TAF
