A new storm system approaching from the west – now in the Great Plains – will stir things up into next week. Until then, warming up… details on your forecast right after this look at Graduation 2013 weather for Saturday…
YOUR WREG-TV MID-SOUTH FORECAST…
The dashed line on the map is known as a surface trof, an elongated area of low pressure… basically a washed-out front. This will be responsible for creating more showers and thunderstorms across the WREG viewing area as it drifts northwards across the I-40 corridor. Taking some rain protection with you today would be a good idea.
Sctrd. showers and thunderstorms today with very warm temperatures in the mid/high 80′s. Coverage chances of precipitation: 30-50%.
Lows tomorrow morning will only fall into the lower 70′s (possibly a few high 60′s) with more patchy dense fog possible across a wider area.

Cool enough to wear your Grizzlies outfit without overheating? Looking much cooler today…
More dry air advances into the Mid-South behind another cold front late Saturday evening. How will the rest of the weekend shape up? More forecast details, right after this look at Memphis Redbirds weather at Autozone Park for today’s game vs. the Fresno Grizzlies.
Outdoor graduation ceremonies (or traveling to indoor ceremonies) should see no problem with the weather, as sunshine will overspread the area and highs will be well below normal in the mid/high 60′s.
Lows by Monday morning will fall into the low 40′s to low 50′s with a few clouds drifting through, but mainly sunshine expected as we head into mid-May.

Rising waters in the Mid-South continue to be a concern, especially after the record flooding of nearly two years ago (48′+ in May 2011).
