MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A strong southerly flow and plenty of sunshine will make for an unseasonably warm end to the week and start to the weekend, but it won’t last too long.

A cold front will enter the Mid-South at the start of the week bringing rain and the return of cooler temperatures.

Isolated showers will be possible at any point on Sunday, but rain will more likely overnight into Monday as the front slowly sinks into the Mid-South.

The severe weather threat appears limited at this time, but there will be a potential for locally heavy rainfall, especially for areas to the north and west.

Flooding could be a concern as 2 to 3 inches of rain could fall across portions of eastern Arkansas and northwest Tennessee, with locally higher amounts.
