Weather Update - 5:30 p.m. Tuesday

Back in the upper 80s today, temperatures were nearly 10ºF above normal for this time of the year! However, overall, our temperatures were right at average for the month of September even though we had a high of 92ºF on the 5th and high of only 66ºF on the 13th!

Tonight will be a clear, calm, and mild night with a few clouds and dry conditions leading to low temperatures in the upper 50s and low 60s Wednesday morning. Light southerly winds tomorrow under mostly sunny skies will bring temperatures into the mid and upper 80s again with a slight chance for a few isolated showers, though the likelier chance for rain will be on Thursday.

A more focused risk for severe weather will exist west of the Mississippi River on Thursday afternoon through Thursday night as a cold front approaches the region. In West Tennessee, we may see two seperate rounds of storms with scattered activity during the late morning and afternoon hours but more widespread thunderstorms moving in around midnight on Thursday night. In both cases, some storms may reach severe limits bringing damaging winds and large hail. Heavy rain will also be possible with some storms but by the late morning on Friday conditions will become dry again.

Over the weekend, temperatures will be MUCH cooler as we start out in the mid 40s on Saturday morning. Some areas may even struggle to reach 70ºF later that afternoon!

Have a great night!
