Weather Update – 3:45 p.m. Monday

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are moving northeast through southwest Tennessee this afternoon resulting in heavy rainfall during this mild afternoon. Main points of focus in this forecast will be the threat for severe weather Tuesday night into Wednesday and the problems this could cause for traveling around the area for the holidays.

Scattered storms will continue to be possible through the evening hours before high pressure briefly gives us a break from the rain on Tuesday. We could see some sunshine tomorrow, after a chilly morning, bringing temperatures into the upper 60s and low 70s. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will return Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Some thunderstorms on Wednesday could become severe with plenty of ingredients available to result in damaging winds, large hail, or even tornadoes. It’s too early to tell what time will have the greatest risk for severe weather but Wednesday morning through evening is about as narrowed down as we can get right now. It also appears that southern portions of West Tennessee – especially those south of Interstate 40 will have the greatest risk for strong to severe thunderstorms at that time.
