Weather Update - 5:25 p.m. Wednesday
What a beautiful day it was across West Tennessee! Temperatures reached highs in the mid and upper 60s for some areas this afternoon though we started off in the upper 30s. More of the same great weather is forecast for Thanksgiving Day, but the rain will return this weekend.
Tonight will be a mild night with partially cloudy skies and southeasterly winds at 5 to 10 miles per hour. This will prevent us from getting back to the 30s and may even keep some out of the 40s! A few will reach lows in the upper 40s but most should only see the low 50s at sunrise on Thanksgiving Day. Under partly to mostly cloudy skies Thursday, high temperatures will have a good chance at reaching the mid and upper 60s with winds at 10 to 15 miles per hour.
The morning on Black Friday may start out dry but we're still looking at a potential for rain arriving sometime during the afternoon and evening - especially for areas north of Interstate 40. If you're leaving West Tennessee this Thanksgiving, your drive out of town will be dry but it may not be that way when you return. There's still a lot of uncertainty in the forecast as to how much rain will fall from Friday through Monday, but some areas could get up to 5" of rain in that time. Jackson may end up having one of the top 10 wettest Novembers on record.
Safe travels and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
