MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Enjoy the dry and sunny weekend because your First Alert weather team is looking ahead to next week as a weather system will sit over the Mid-South, giving us several days of rain.

Monday will start off dry, but showers will begin in the afternoon as a slow-moving cold front moves into the region.

This cold front will become nearly stationary and therefore linger over the Mid-South for several days.

Rain will become widespread by Tuesday morning and rain will continue through the evening.

Showers will also be possible on Wednesday and Thursday.
