MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A frost is possible across much of the Mid-South early Saturday morning.

A Freeze Watch has been issued for portions of Northeast Arkansas. Sub-freezing temperatures as low as 31 are possible.

A Frost Advisory has been issued for all of the Mid-South with temperatures dropping into the 30s.

Even residents outside of these Watches and Advisories should take steps to protect tender plants from the cold.

Frost and freeze conditions could kill crops, other sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing.

To prevent freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-ground pipes to protect them from freezing.

After a cold Saturday morning, highs will be around 60 degrees on Saturday afternoon with lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s that night. Sunday will be sunny and warmer with highs in the lower to mid 70s.

Rain will move back in at the start of next week with showers and storms possible Monday through Wednesday. High temperatures will park in the lower to mid 70s with lows in the 50s and 60s.

  • NORMAL HIGH: 71
  • NORMAL LOW: 50
