Weather Update – 11:00 p.m. Wednesday
Dry conditions are expected to continue overnight under partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will drop to the lower and middle 70s by sunrise at 6:12 a.m. Thursday morning. Patchy fog will be possible in the calm winds like we had earlier today. Rain remains sparse in the forecast over the next couple of days with isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms through Friday. There are some challenges with forecasting the placement of the oncoming cold front, meaning next week might not start out as relatively “cool” as originally predicted.
Like today, conditions will begin dry with partly cloudy skies tomorrow with temperatures peaking in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Scattered thunderstorms are possible during the afternoon and early evening. Once again, the main concerns will be with locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds in thunderstorms that develop, but severe weather is not likely.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND
The low pressure system sitting over the southeastern United States will continue to cause scattered thunderstorms during Friday afternoon as it moves northwest toward the Mid-South. Rain chances are trending lower for Friday so while a passing storm is possible, many of us may remain rain-free for the rest of the workweek! A cold front will begin to approach West Tennessee Saturday increasing the chance for rain. Forecast rainfall amounts are also trending lower because the cold front may stall out before getting close enough to give the area a significant amount of rain.

Have a good evening!
