WEATHER UPDATE: Spotty showers continue to move through the area even as I step outside our studio here in Jackson. They are on the light side but you will want to have the jacket and umbrella just in case. These showers will continue to move through the area with the heaviest rain staying to our north across Kentucky and to our south across Mississippi. Don't be surprised though if we get a little bit of a light burst of rain overnight though especially up towards our friends in Martin and Murray. Conditions will gradually clear out just in time for your morning services. There will be cooler conditions compared to today with temps in the upper 50s. If we get the cloud cover out here maybe 60 degrees. Remember to turn those clocks ahead by 1 hour tonight and get ready for the warm up.
Good afternoon and evening West Tennessee on this beautiful sun soaked Saturday. The warm conditions that everyone has been looking for are finally here and helping along the melting process of this past week's winter storm. Today we reached highs in the low to mid 60s with a little bit cooler conditions up across the Bootheel of Missouri and the northwest corner of Arkansas.
A cold front continues to work in from the east with a few spotty showers. Dew points are low though and precipitation is sparse so we may not see anything at all. If you are out though carry the umbrella just in case you run into one of these stray spotty showers. Clouds will slowly decrease through the early part of Sunday morning with temperatures rising into the mid to upper 50s. If we can get enough sun in here by the afternoon hours some may luck out and reach 60 degrees.
We are in store for a real treat both Monday and Tuesday as temperatures sore into the upper 60s and low to mid 70s. High pressure will build in with south westerly flow allowing temperatures to soar. It will be a great day to wear the shorts, t-shirts and sunglasses as well as maybe getting some lunch or an early round of golf in for the busy workweek ahead.
The beautiful conditions will not last for long as another cold front with a better chance of rain approaches for Wednesday. Temperatures will cool back down into the low to mid 50s before warming back up again by later next week.
***Remember to spring forward tonight since we will be losing that extra hour of sleep to gain that extra hour of daylight. Turn those clocks ahead by 1 hour tonight as well as check the batteries in the smoke alarms.***
Stay safe and enjoy the picture perfect weather!
