Hot start to the weekend
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Expect more intense heat this afternoon with filtered sunshine, a few clouds and thick haze or smoke. A stray shower or storm can’t be ruled out, mainly in west TN and northeast AR. Highs will be in the mid 90s with the heat index from 105-110.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy and warm. Lows in the mid to upper 70s. Winds will be light.
WEEKEND: The hot and humid pattern will continue Saturday with highs in the mid to upper 90s Saturday and lows in the mid to upper 70s. There will be a slight chance of a passing shower or storm Saturday but a higher chance on Sunday as a front lingers in the area. Highs will back down into the upper 80s Sunday.
NEXT WEEK: A passing shower or storm is possible as the front pushes south Monday with highs in the mid to upper 80s. Lows will drop into the upper 60s to low 70s Monday night, so it will feel much better. Highs will remain in the mid to upper 80s most of the week with lows near 70 or so. Tuesday through Thursday look dry at this time.
