From the Vipir 7 Storm Center


Our last weekend of Summer is finally here in West Tennessee and it sure did feel like it with the above normal temperatures. Many areas top out in the mid to upper 80s with a few low 90s across the river valley regions. The humidity also made it feel more like Summer with dew points in the upper 60s and low 70s courtesy of those pesky southwesterly winds pushing in those steamy conditions.

Tonight will be another mild and muggy night with lows in the upper 60s and low 70s. The air conditioner may be needed but it looks as if "Mother Nature" will make her own air conditioning by the time we get Sunday. Clouds will also continue to increase over the area as our weak and quick moving storm system pushes through the area.

Sunday is our day of change and our last real day of Summer. Temperatures will top out in the low to mid 80s before a cold front marches through the area during the early morning and afternoon hours. As the front passes a few scattered showers or storms cannot be ruled out. Rainfall amounts will be less then .25" to .5". The big difference you will notice is the humidity. Dry to comfortable air will filter in over the region late Sunday into Monday making it truly feel like Fall.

Fall starts Monday September 22nd at 9:29 PM. Temperatures fittingly will be in the upper 70s to low 80s. Nighttime lows though by Tuesday morning though could be in the mid to upper 40s and low 50s as our cool airmass positions itself right over the area.

Our pleasant stretch of weather looks to continue right through Friday with temperatures slowly warming back up into the low 80 to mid 80s by week's end.

Next chance for rain arrives by later on next weekend.

Have a great night and enjoy the last real day of Summer tomorrow!
