Weather Update - 4:30 p.m. Tuesday

High clouds overhead kept temperatures in the upper 40s and low 50s this afternoon as a low pressure trough moved farther to the east. Skies will clear out tonight as a result of high pressure building back in but there will be a chance for rain in the forecast before we get to Thanksgiving Day!

Overnight, with light winds and clear skies, temperatures should drop quickly with our lows in the mid and upper 20s for the most part across West Tennessee. Wednesday will start out clear but cloud cover will gradually return ahead of another low pressure system that will dive south into Western Kentucky from the Northern Plains. There were a few computer models depicting that there could be a rain and snow mix briefly in northern West Tennessee when this system arrives on Wednesday afternoon, but I think we should only see rain from this event. What may start out as frozen precipitation in the upper atmosphere will likely melt as it falls into warmer air at the surface. High temperatures tomorrow will spread from the upper 40s to upper 50s as a result of cloud cover over northern sections of the Mid-South.

Calm, mainly clear, and chilly weather will return on Thursday, so if you'll be outside at all on Thanksgiving make sure to wear something to keep you warm as high temperatures will only be in the mid 40s. Sunshine will continue for Friday as southerly flow returns picking temperatures up into the upper 50s and low 60s as we head into the weekend.

Enjoy your evening and a wonderful Thanksgiving!
