First the rain then here comes the colder air


SUMMARY: A major change in our weather pattern will take place today as we’re waking up to rain showers and cloudy skies as a strong cold front pushes through the region. Much colder air will be filtering in as we head into Friday and the weekend. Some showers are possible into Friday night into Saturday, but not looking to be a big concern. Valentine’s Day weekend is looking cold and cloudy, but a bigger storm system lurks for Monday into Tuesday that could bring us some winter weather concerns. We’ll be watching this closely over the next several days and keep you updated as we fine tune the forecast.

THURSDAY: After some thundershowers overnight, rain chances will continue for our Thursday. There’s a chance some freezing rain could develop across our far NW counties if temperatures can get cold enough, so keep in mind about roads and travel conditions if you need to travel towards Memphis or Oxford. The colder air will also move in so it’s just going to feel downright raw out there with the falling temperatures, cloudy skies and rain chances throughout the day. Can’t say we didn’t warn you! North winds 5-10 mph.

THURSDAY NIGHT: Cloudy skies. Some lingering rain is possible. Overnight lows in the 30s.

FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy skies. Some lingering showers will remain possible. Highs much cooler in the lower 40s and maybe even upper 30s. A bit breezy with north winds 10-15 mph, gusting up to 20 mph.
