Needed Rainfall Returns Over the Weekend

Weather Update – 10:00 p.m. – Thursday

Getting chilly out there! After warming up to the middle and upper 40s today, skies remain partly to mostly cloudy in some spots. Temperatures are already cooling down to the 20s this evening for a freezing start to Friday morning. The main focus in our forecast tonight is the dry weather until we get to Sunday when we could get some much needed rainfall. Parts of West Tennessee are currently abnormally dry or in a moderate drought.

Expect a cold night as skies gradually clear out with overnight lows in the middle and upper 20s to start Friday. After starting out freezing, we’ll warm up to the middle and upper 40s again tomorrow and skies will look a lot like they did today – partly cloudy but with periods of sunshine too. Rain won’t return until this coming weekend when we could get a quarter to a half inch of rain. Temperatures will be much warmer next week too with highs in the 60s possible on Monday and Tuesday.
