MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) -We ended the work week, yesterday with record-breaking heat and thankfully this weekend, temperatures will be slightly cooler. A weak cold front will move across the Mid-South through this afternoon. It will allow humidity levels and temperatures to drop some today and it will be way more comfortable tonight and tomorrow. There could be a stray shower in eastern Arkansas and north Mississippi south of I-40 this afternoon but most areas will remain dry.

TODAY: Expect a mix of sun and clouds with highs 90-95 by afternoon. It won’t be as humid, with a northeasterly wind at 10-20 mph.

TONIGHT: Mostly clear and pleasant with lows in the mid to upper 60s.

FATHER’S DAY: Mostly sunny with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s and not as humid. Northeasterly winds at 5-10 mph. Lows will be in the upper 60s.

NEXT WEEK: Scorching heat will make a comeback for the entire week. Highs will range from the upper 90s to around 102. The heat index could hit 105 or higher starting Tuesday through late week. Lows will be in the 70s. Rain chances will remain low.
