Heavy Rain Potential for the Mississippi Valley Next Week

29 Nov 2017, 1:28 pm

A strong cold front will bring active weather to the Mississippi and Tennessee Valley early next week.  This particular setup is looking more like a heavy rain even, but it’s still too far out to determine a severe weather risk.  The latest timing is going to be next Monday through early Wednesday.

Heavy Rain Setup

A significant cold front will be pushing into the central U.S. by early next week.  A significant increase of moisture will be arriving out ahead of this cold front and should help to provide the fuel for some heavy rain chances.  At the moment Arkansas should see the heaviest rainfall and since this is so far out in the future the location for the heavy rain could change.  We will continue to watch this scenario and update you with the very latest.

Potential Drought Relief

This heavy rain will be a welcomed sight for parts of Arkansas, Missouri and northeast Texas.  Moderate to severe drought conditions are currently taking place over the Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys.  Any rainfall should help out these conditions, but the location of the rainfall could change.
