Getting outside today was true delight! We enjoyed a high temperature of 78ºF making it the warmest day we've had in Jackson since mid-October of last year. Unfortunately, colder air is on the way and this was likely the warmest day we'll have for the rest of the week. Temperatures are expected to drop at least fifty degrees from this Tuesday afternoon until early Thursday morning.
Tonight, an area of low pressure along the Gulf of Mexico is expected to move inland bringing cloud cover, rain showers, and thunderstorms to West Tennessee. In addition, a cold front and associated low pressure system will result in colder air and a few showers to the region once these features move into the Mid-South later this evening. Less than a quarter of an inch of rain is expected to have accumulated by noon Wednesday when showers will have come to an end.
Winds will be gusting up to 40mph tomorrow morning resulting in falling tree branches and spotty power outages in the area. Try to secure any loose yard items you might have to prevent them from blowing away! As mentioned earlier, temperatures will be dropping for most of the day Wednesday with brief warming occurring in the afternoon and temperatures only in the low fifties and upper forties at that time.
Skies should be clearer for sunset on Wednesday night and for the entire day Thursday but even Thursday will be cool with highs in the low fifties and upper forties. By Friday, high pressure will move east of the area, ushering warmer air back into West Tennessee bringing our temperatures up into the sixties.
Have a good night!
