***A Freeze Watch has been issued for several counties in West Tennessee including Lake, Obion, Weakley, Henry, Dyer, Gibson, Carroll, Benton, Crockett, Madison, Chester, Henderson, Decatur, McNairy, and Hardin counties from Friday night through Saturday morning. Temperatures will drop close to freezing and even below 32ºF in much of the region, so make sure to cover sensitive plants and vegetation around the house!

Weather Update - 5:00 p.m. Thursday

Scattered showers continue to touch off in West Tennessee behind a cold front that's currently pushing into the southeast United States. The temperature in Jackson has dropped 20º since 1 a.m. this morning when we were in the mid 60s! It's also been windy with the latest gust from the north recorded at 2:05 p.m. of 26 mph at the McKellar-Sipes Regional Airport. Unfortunately, the cold will stick around for a few days before warmer weather returns for the end of March.

Overnight, skies will gradually clear from west to east with lighter winds allowing for temperatures to return to the low and mid 30s. It's been over two weeks, 18 days to be exact, since temperatures were that cold! Cloud cover will return during the morning tomorrow with an isolated rain shower possible though most places should stay dry. Temperatures will be close to 20 degrees below normal tomorrow with highs forecast for the mid and upper 40s and low 50s.

Over the weekend, Saturday will still be a cold and cloudy day with a slight chance for a scattered rain shower. In northwest Tennessee, it may be cold enough to snow briefly but if snow falls, it shouldn't stick to the roads so this won't affect travel. If snow mixes in with rain it would be light but the chance is still currently less than 20% for snow or rain to occur. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy before they clear Saturday night. Once again, there will be a possibility for temperatures to drop below freezing by Sunday morning, perhaps even into the low 20s! Thankfully, plenty of sunshine appears to be available for Sunday which should lead to high temperatures back in the 60s.

Stay warm and have a great evening!
