From the Vipir 7 Storm Center
A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Lauderdale, Tipton, Haywood, Madison, Chester, Shelby, Fayette, Hardeman, McNairy, and Hardin counties until 6am. An additional 2"-4" of rain will cause flooded roads and quick rises in water levels along creeks and small rivers.
Weather Update - 12:00 a.m. Wednesday
Large hail and flash flooding was reported across many locations tonight in West Tennessee, especially in the southwest part of the state. Remember to turn around from flooded roads and find an alternate route to make it safely to your destination. Turn around, don't drown!
A ridge of high pressure building in should calm the evening with partly cloudy to mostly clear skies expected. Temperatures will drop to overnight lows between the mid and upper 40s and mid 50s with the coolest ares at the Tennessee River and the warmer weather near the Mississippi River. Patchy fog may develop by morning. Tomorrow, with weak high pressure in place, scattered showers and thunderstorms have a 20% chance of occurring so most areas should stay dry. Those cities close to the Mississippi River may still see a strong thunderstorm or two during the afternoon and evening. Highs will be in the mid and upper 70s across West Tennessee.
A more active weather pattern, bringing a better chance for thunderstorms, will move in with a cold front on Thursday during the day and night. Storms will even continue to be a problem on Friday as well. Strong wind gusts and large hail will be possible with these thunderstorms as well as a chance for flash flooding as some areas could receive over 2" of rainfall by Friday night. Fortunately, high pressure will return bringing clear skies but cooler weather over the Easter weekend.
