Weather Update - 5:30 p.m. Friday
Thanks to clouds and light winds out of the northeast, temperatures were a little cooler today with some areas not even making it to 70ºF, including Jackson. Warmer weather is expected over the weekend with heavy rain possible Saturday and Sunday night. There remains a concern for flash flooding potential in West Tennessee on both of those occasions.
Overnight, skies may briefly be partly cloudy to mostly clear allowing for a quick drop in temps. However, skies will become cloudy again after midnight and overnight lows will be in the mid and upper 50s and low 60s. Dry conditions will continue through Saturday morning, until a few showers begin to move into West Tennessee by the afternoon. The heaviest rain showers may not begin until after sunset Saturday night with heavy rain continuing in the Mid-South through the overnight hours.
A cold front will move through the region on Sunday bringing another round of showers and thunderstorms. A few of these storms could be severe with heavy rainfall and strong winds. Total rainfall amounts for most of West Tennessee should be between a half an inch and 1 inch from Saturday through Monday morning, but amounts up to 2 inches are possible.
The VIPIR 7 Storm Team will keep you updated on the forecast through the weekend.
Have a great night!
