Weather Update – 11:30 p.m. Thursday
Skies will remain mostly cloudy into the overnight hours for some but there are some spots of mostly clear skies for a few to see the Perseid meteor shower tonight. Conditions will be warm and muggy overnight with the cloud cover and temps will only drop to the middle 70s by sunrise Friday morning.
Mostly cloudy conditions are expected to continue Friday which may in turn keep some of us from reaching 90°F again! Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible, but the chance for rain continues to trend lower with the latest incoming data. Storms will be hit or miss tomorrow with only a few areas getting heavy rainfall.
A cold front moving southeast toward West Tennessee this weekend will be the main feature in the forecast. However, by no means does this indicate a significant drop in temperature (or humidity for that matter) over the weekend. It does have potential to increase rain chances for Saturday and Sunday but, like yesterday, the models have continued to suggest that the heaviest and most widespread rain will fall west of the Mississippi River and north of the Tennessee-Kentucky border leaving us with now just a 30% – 40% chance in West Tennessee over the weekend.
If you have any outdoor plans, don’t cancel them! Instead, just have a backup plan in case one of those hit-or-miss showers comes your way. Stay with the VIPIR 7 Storm Team for the latest updates to the forecast!
Have a great evening!
