Forecast for the Memphis in May BBQ Cooking Contest

A cold front will work it's way into the Mid-South today. Ahead of the front, remnants from last night's severe weather have moved into the metro region early this morning, bringing a fairly strong gust front, followed by a broken line of t'storms and an area of rain and embedded thunder trailing the line. Expect this rain to last through late morning, with scattered showers and thunderstorms continuing this afternoon. Highs should still reach near 80 by late afternoon.

Tonight, the front lifts back to the north and takes most rain chances with it. Low chances are again in order for Friday's opening to the Memphis in May World Championship BBQ Cooking Contest. Then, that front makes one more run at us Saturday, bringing more rain and thunderstorms. Everything moves out by Sunday morning with a pleasant day for the most part and a good start to next week. Overall, chances for severe weather are low, but not negligible the next few days. For a complete forecast, visit and the MWN Forecast.
