The WTVA Severe Weather Authority has a summary of what you can expect in the coming days.

Scattered strong storms could lead to more flash flooding on Tuesday

Expect widespread fog with warm, muggy conditions this Tuesday morning. Temperatures start in the upper 50s to lower 60s. And scattered showers can be expected at times. Some of them could be heavy at times. 

Tuesday's severe weather risk

These scattered downpours will likely become a bit more widespread into the midday and afternoon hours. But their focus will shift a bit farther south as a cold front brings slightly cooler, drier air to the northern half of our area. Temperatures in the afternoon will range from the upper 60s to lower 70s with some northwest of the Natchez Trace only seeing highs in the lower 60s. A few storms could be strong with the severe potential at a Level 1 out of 5 (low). 

Flash flood watches are in effect through 6 a.m. Wednesday morning for the southern half of the WTVA 9 News coverage area. Additional rainfall totals could range from 1 to 3 inches in areas already waterlogged by last week's heavy rainfall. Some scattered light showers are likely to follow into Wednesday morning with temperatures dipping into the lower 40s. 

Expect drier conditions Wednesday afternoon with some sunshine. Highs will reach the lower and mid-50s. But as we head into Thursday, another wave of cold showers moves into the area. Highs on Thursday will reach the mid-40s. Then we dry out into Friday and Saturday.
