Weather Update - 5:00 p.m. Friday

An area of low pressure in the Gulf Coast is advancing scattered light showers into West Tennessee. Most of the rain will fall farther south across portions of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.

Tonight, temperatures will only drop slowly into the 30s with overcast to mostly cloudy skies. A few light rain showers will be possible with light snow possibly mixing in with any showers that linger into early Saturday morning. Don't expect the snow to stick though!

Over the weekend, we could see brief periods of sunshine Saturday afternoon and during parts of Sunday morning. Temperatures will be warmer over the weekend with highs in the upper 40s and low 50s. Rain looks more likely for the start of Tuesday with an area of low pressure moving into West Tennessee as it develops along an oncoming cold front.

Long Term:

Christmas Eve is still expected to be a cold day with high temperatures only in the upper 30s and low 40s. Rain should be over with on Christmas Eve morning, but I wouldn't be surprised if we had a few flurries lingering into the afternoon. Christmas Day will be a little warmer with temperatures returning to the upper 40s which is closer to average for this time of year. Skies will be partly cloudy.

Have a great weekend!
