Weather Update - 5:20 p.m. Wednesday

Isolated showers and thunderstorms are impacting portions of West Tennessee today with very little movement. One thunderstorm even produced heavy rain that lead to flash flooding in Shelby county! This pattern of hot and humid weather is forecast to stick around through the Labor Day weekend.

Showers and thunderstorms will disappear after sunset, a few minutes before 7:30pm. Our temperatures will bottom out in the upper 60s and low 70s once again as skies become relatively clearer by early Thursday morning. Patchy fog will start the day, but mostly sunny conditions are expected later in the morning and afternoon with a small chance for a pop-up shower or thunderstorm. Temperatures will peak in the low to mid 90s for another hot day tomorrow.

The forecast through the Labor Day weekend looks similar to what we've had so far today with high pressure still in place. This should limit the coverage of any showers and thunderstorms that form but keep temperatures above average. Our weather pattern will change once a cold front moves into the region by next Thursday.

Have a great night!
