Weather Update - 5:30 p.m. Monday

Scattered showers and thunderstorms in West Tennessee continue to bring heavy rain to the region but not everyone got rained on in West Tennessee today. We'll have a more likely chance for rain in the region as we jump into July on Wednesday.

Tonight, showers and thunderstorms will continue to be possible after sunset, but the coverage should diminish with the loss of daytime heating. Under partly cloudy skies, temperatures will drop to the upper 60s and the low 70s by sunrise on Tuesday. During the day tomorrow, we'll have a few showers and thunderstorms again but the activity should be scattered. Temperatures will soar back into the upper 80s and low 90s during the afternoon.

Wednesday and Thursday, an approaching cold front will bring more widespread rainfall and could even result in a strong to severe thunderstorm. Damaging winds and large hail will be possible in some of these storms but right now the risk for severe weather appears to be low.

On Saturday, the Fourth of July, West Tennessee currently has a 40% chance for rain in the forecast. It doesn't seem to be as much a question of whether or not it will rain in the region, but rather where it will rain.

Stay with the VIPIR 7 Storm Team for the latest on this forecast.

Have a great evening!
