Weather Update - 10:30 p.m. Wednesday

After having the hottest day of the year so far we may have one of the warmest nights of the year so far too! Heat alerts have expired but a few thunderstorms have produced heavy rain and frequent lightning at times, especially over east Henderson and Decatur counties.

Under partly cloudy skies, temperatures will only drop to the mid and upper 70s. Tomorrow will start out warm but less humid air will move in throughout the day. Winds could gust up to 15 mph out of the north which will make high temperatures near 90ºF feel great compared to what we've had! Heat indices will stay below 100ºF for the whole area. Besides a small chance for an isolated shower Thursday morning in southwest Tennessee, tomorrow should be dry.

High pressure will keep dry weather around for much of the rest of the week with temperatures starting out Friday and Saturday morning in the 60s. An isolated shower or thunderstorm will be possible this weekend but we shouldn't get much with the drier air in place. Afternoon temperatures will slowly return to the mid 90s next week as Jackson-Madison county students return to school.

Have a good evening.
