|Clouds are prevalent over the southern half of the area this afternoon, while sunshine abounds north of the TN/MS line.|
|A round of scattered showers and a few thunderstorms is expected early Monday as this model simulation of radar echoes shows. The model depicted is the newest high resolution NAM valid from midnight to noon Monday. (PivotalWx)|
|Very warm air will be in place Monday afternoon, as shown by the forecast temps at 3pm from the high-resolution NAM model. Highs in Memphis could reach 70° with a warm southerly wind. (PivotalWx)|
|This loop of upper-level energy (yellows/oranges) from the GFS model shows a shortwave trough and its attendant lift moving across the southern Plains Monday and into the Mid-South very early Tuesday. (PivotalWx)|
The early day storms will far out-run a cold front, which means after the storms, a few showers will be possible Tuesday but temperatures should again reach the 70° mark (perhaps warmer than Monday) as wind remains southwesterly and dewpoints still at least in the 50s.
|Another warm day is expected Tuesday behind the morning storms and ahead of Wednesday's cold front. The high-res NAM model predicts widespread 70s along and west of the Mississippi River at 3pm. (PivotalWx)|
