1. Cold nw winds and overcast skies will only allow for highs in the low to mid 30’s Monday across the mid south.
2. Tuesday should be a seasonable day with more sunshine and highs near 40 thanks to high pressure moving in.
3. This high pressure should allow for a decent influx of warm air advection into the region for Wednesday and Thursday with fresh cold air not arriving till late Thursday. This means that the diagramed rain or snow chance for Wednesday night although light should be rain. Highs Wednesday and Thursday should be in the upper 30’s to 40 with thickness values over 540 and 850 mb temps above 0 all of these lead to the conclusion of mainly rain across the mid south from this storm. However by Thursday night the secondary low should track to our southeast which may change the rain over to some snow, this looks to take more time to deelvop meaning lighter precip than I had shown on the last post. At this time only light snow showers and flurries are expected from Thursday night into early Saturday.
4. The first arctic blast of the season will be coming for the new year which will be covered in the next update toward the end of the week. There could be a chance for very light snow Sunday although this could be further west toward Kansas City and Memphis.
