MONDAY: A broad storm system will yield periods of heavy rain, gusty winds and an isolated strong storm risk late Monday. Highs will top out in the 60s ahead of periods of heavy rain that will shift eastward through Monday afternoon. ALERTING YOU to a low-end risk of a strong, gusty storm or two that can’t be ruled out – mainly near and south of I-40. Wind gusts – outside any storms - could be around 25-35 mph with 1-2″ rain likely region-wide. Low-lying and poor drainage areas could have localized flooding impacts amid the rain periods. Severe risk will be a quick risk – late Monday afternoon into early Tuesday – coming to an end by midnight. Stay weather aware through the day and we’ll keep you advised. Lows will bottom out in the 50s under mainly cloudy skies and chilly breezes developing.

TUESDAY: A lingering shower or two will be possible amid variably cloudy skies in the wake of the broad scale storm system exiting the region along with a gradual drop in temperatures through the day. A cold front shifting through the Mid-South will drag in much cooler air – expect morning temperatures in the middle to upper 50s, falling to the upper 40s and lower 50s by the afternoon hours. Skies clear out a bit with lows falling into the upper 30s and lower 40s.

EXTENDED PLANNER: Our pattern looks mainly quiet through mid-week, including for Thanksgiving – though, a few more clouds will build into the skies and a small chance of a passing shower or two will be possible Thursday night into Black Friday morning. Highs will be in the 50s, lows in the 30s and 40s.
