Weather Update - 4:45 p.m. Monday

After some sunshine this afternoon, temperatures warmed up to the mid and upper 60s across West Tennessee. Still, those numbers are almost 10ºF below where the average high is during this time of the year! There's good news though - over the next seven days starting Wednesday, each day will be warmer than the one before it.

Tonight will be another cool night as skies become mostly cloudy again. Temperatures will drop to the low and mid 40s by sunrise with dry conditions overnight. During the day tomorrow, the chance for rain will increase with some parts of southwest Tennessee starting to see showers move in during the afternoon. Under mostly cloudy to overcast skies, temperatures will only warm up to the low and mid 60s.

The best chance for rain this week will be from Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning. Rainfall totals will be meager at best - most areas should see less than a quarter of an inch with higher amounts possible in areas south of I-40. Northwest Tennessee may not get any rain at all, it just depends on the path a low pressure system takes as it moves through the Gulf Coast states this week. Plenty of sunshine is forecast by the upcoming weekend.

Have a good night!
