Weather Update – 10 p.m. Tuesday

Skies have become overcast tonight for most of the area with showers and an isolated thunderstorm starting to show up over southwest Tennessee. Temperatures are expected to stay in the 60s as showers and isolated thunderstorms continue to take over more of the area overnight.


WEDNESDAY
With scattered showers to start the day, skies will be mostly cloudy tomorrow. Despite the expected lack of sunshine, we should still have a breezy day on our hands with southerly winds bringing temperatures back to the mid and upper 70s again. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will also be possible.

THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY
More rain is likely Thursday, Friday, and Saturday with a possibility for thunderstorms within the oncoming showers. Some of the rain could be heavy at times leading to localized flooding across West Tennessee, but especially in areas near the Mississippi River. When all is said and done, we’re generally expecting close to 2″ of rain for Jackson but farther west there could be as much as 4″ in parts of West Tennessee near the Mississippi River (Dyersburg, Ripley, Tiptonville) but it’s possible that parts of West Tennessee near the Tennessee River (Savannah, Decaturville, Camden) get 1″ to 2″ between now and Sunday.
