Weather Update - 4:45 p.m. Friday
Showers and thunderstorms are forming in West Tennessee but they are still very isolated. For the most part, it's been another warm and humid afternoon in the Mid-South. However, more rain is on the way for the weekend which may become heavy at times.
Tonight, any lingering showers and thunderstorms will dissipate after sunset once we lose the daytime heating. The storms to our west across parts of Arkansas are moving in our direction, but short term computer models are leading to these dissipating before they can make it to the Mississippi River. Nevertheless, an isolated shower will still be possible overnight, especially near the western-most counties in West Tennessee.
Tomorrow, a cold front approaching West Tennessee will bring a more likely chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. The latest look at this forecast has been trending toward more scattered than widespread rain for tomorrow. This means that some locations might only get a little rain while others could still get a lot. Thunderstorms will have the potential to bring strong gusts of winds along with heavy rain that could lead to flash flooding issues in local areas.
Sunday, the front will start to move farther south and east but showers and thunderstorms will still have a chance of forming in southwest Tennessee with drier conditions in the northern portions of the Mid-South. Temperatures will be cooler as we head into early June, with a more likely chance for drier weather expected Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
Stay tuned for the latest forecast from the VIPIR 7 Storm Team Weather Center. Remember to never drive through flooded roadways and to stay weather aware.
Have a great and safe weekend!
