Staying dry for Thursday; tracking rain to end the work week

Staying dry for Thursday; tracking rain to end the work week

The chance of rain will gradually taper off Wednesday night, but a few additional scattered showers can't be entirely ruled out for Thursday afternoon. If it moves northward, we will have a cloudy day on Friday with some showers.

Sunday should see better weather with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the upper-50s. Another system will sweep through into Saturday with a chance for showers and cooler temperatures.

Thu: High: 66 Mostly sunny to partly cloudy. Rainfall totals only look to be on the order of a half inch or less, but there might be some isolated higher amounts.

If seeing gray skies and rain gets you down, just remember that the sun will come out - eventually.

We keep mostly cloudy skies for Friday with another cold front sliding through the area starting around lunch time and lasting into the evening. Highs should be around 70 with drier weather in place. But with partial sunshine and dry weather, it should still be a pleasant Spring day.

Showers Wednesday morning will exit south of the metro by 10am and south of the viewing area by noon. Temps in Memphis will be in the upper 50s around 9:00am and the low 60s around noon.

With a few passing clouds tonight light sprinkles are possible as overnight lows drop back into the low to mid 40s by morning. The rain will likely be disruptive for your morning commute and for kids catching the bus to school early this morning.

Friday: Highs into the upper 70's.

That will be the beginning of a very nice warming trend that could have us in the 70s over the weekend. Some locations with a bit of clearing late in the day may see temperatures climb a bit higher, closer to 60 degrees. Most of next week should stay rather warm. The second wave could bring a few isolated showers to northern portions of central IN by late evening.
