Low pressure will develop over the southern plains and move in our direction late today through Saturday. There will be a chance of showers late this afternoon and evening, but the bulk of the rain (and it could be heavy at times) will fall late tonight through Saturday morning. Rainfall amounts could exceed an inch during this period and steady rain may not taper off until late morning. As the low pressure system approaches, more unstable air will work it's way into southern parts of the Mid-South, mainly over north MS, Saturday afternoon and evening. As the low moves nearly overhead, scattered thunderstorms are expected to fire during the afternoon, especially if breaks in the clouds allow temps to climb into the mid 70s or higher. Not everyone will likely see storms, but there is a 50/50 chance of them occurring during the afternoon and evening.
|Much of the Mid-South could see up to 2" of rain by Sunday morning from the weekend system.|
|A Slight Risk of severe weather exists Saturday afternoon/evening over north MS, south AR, and north LA.|
