Another Wet Weekend

Weather Update- 5PM


In Jackson the temperature is 86°, mostly everyone is sitting in the upper 80s. The day hasn’t turned out as wet as we thought it was going to, but we still have quite a few daylight hours left to see that chance of rain increase into the evening hours.

There have been some of those pesky showers lingering over West Tennessee all day, but the chance for rain is reaching up to a 60% chance the longer the day goes on. We may begin to see some heavier pockets of rain form over the course of the next few hours. Flash Flooding is the main concern tonight and tomorrow. The low pressure system that was coming out of Louisiana is beginning to interact with the cold front that was approaching Tennessee, which means it is slowly becoming stationary. Some areas could see up to 2.0 inches or more of rain. Severe weather isn’t likely, but some rumbles of thunder or flashes of lightening could be possible with those areas seeing heavier showers.

Sunday will bring another round of heavy rain and it’s going to be much like Saturday, but more rain is actually possible. The good thing with all of this moisture is that it is going to help to keep our temperatures lower than usual, only reaching the middle 80s. We may see some peaks of sunshine during Saturday and Sunday, but it should remain mostly to partly cloudy across the area.

Rest of the Week

Going into the work week we will continue to see some rain well into Friday even. As I said though, this will help keep our temperatures in the middle 80s. If we do see some sunshine, that could help to heat things up just slightly. Clearer skies could return by Thursday or Friday. The mugginess should stick around, although you might be able to feel a slight dip in the humidity levels by the middle of the week.

Everyone have a great weekend and stay safe!
