Slight Warm Up, With Rain on the Way

Weather Update- 5AM

Good morning everyone! Temperatures across west Tennessee are feeling incredibly bitter this morning! Union City is 16°, Martin is 15° and Paris is a bone rattling 14°! While the rest of us are staying in the upper teens this morning with Jackson sitting on 18° this morning. Skies are clear and there is a gorgeous moon out right now! Light winds are in place, so there may be some fog around bodies of water, but that should quickly dissipate as the sun rises shortly after 6:30AM.

The temperatures won’t get very high today, so coats will be needed. We will top off at 43° today. Skies will stay mostly clear and the winds will become out of the south, so that will feel just a little better than the northerly winds we had been seeing all week. Clouds will gradually build in today, becoming most thick during the overnight hours. We will drop down to and bottom out at 30° tonight.


Our chance for rain will return Sunday and will increase during the evening into Monday morning. By lunch time on Monday, it will move out of West Tennessee into the rest of the state.

Along with the chance for rain on Sunday will come a warming trend with temperatures climbing up into the 50s from Sunday to Tuesday, but yet again another round of arctic air is on its way. We do have a chance for some type of precipitation on Wednesday, whether it is just rain or becoming a wintry mix. We won’t be able to tell for sure until closer to that day. Temperatures will fall back down to the 30s as our high on Thursday, with another chance for rain returning on Friday.

Everyone have a great and safe week! I’ll be here with you all weekend to keep you updated on your latest forecast.
