The next big weather system is a springtime front that moves through early Monday. Ahead of it, the increasing moisture levels and some instability will result in showers and thunderstorms affecting the area starting Sunday evening and continuing overnight. Severe weather is questionable at this time in the metro due to the atmosphere becoming more stable overnight Sunday night when the front arrives. However areas west of the Mississippi River could see the potential for strong to severe storms Sunday afternoon and evening as shown in the Storm Prediction Center Day 3 severe weather outlook graphic below.
|Probability of severe weather within 25 miles of a point Sunday-Sunday night, according to SPC. The main risk zone will be west of the Mississippi River.|
|Projected rainfall totals from Sunday night through Monday. The Mid-South is likely to see well over an inch of rain, with locally higher amounts.|
