Weather Update – 11:00 p.m. Friday

Skies will be mostly clear tonight with lighter winds after sunset. Cooler and drier air will continue to settle into West Tennessee with temps down to the upper 50s and lower 60s by sunrise at 6:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

Expect mainly clear skies and dry weather Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will start to warm up gradually through the weekend with a slow return in the humidity as well – especially by Sunday afternoon. Highs will be in the middle to upper 80s on Saturday and upper 80s to lower 90s on Sunday and Monday.

There’s a small chance for a pop-up shower or thunderstorm Monday morning and afternoon. Showers will be hit-or-miss so not everyone will get rain, in fact, most won’t get any at all but keep an eye on the skies just in case!

Have a wonderful weekend!

TROPICAL WEATHER UPDATE – – – 10:00 p.m. CDT September 2, 2016

At 10:00 p.m. CDT, Tropical Storm Hermine, was located about 30 miles west-southwest of Wilmington, NC. The storm is currently moving northeast at 22 mph with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph.

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Edisto Beach to Sandy Hook; Pamlico and Albemarle Sounds; Chesapeake Bay from Drum Point southward; Tidal Potomac from Cobb Island eastward and Delaware Bay.

From the National Hurricane Center:


WIND: Tropical storm conditions will continue to spread northward within the warning area along the Atlantic coast through Sunday. Tropical storm conditions are possible in the watch area by late Sunday or Sunday night.

STORM SURGE: The combination of a storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. There is a danger of life-threatening inundation during the next 24 hours in the Hampton Roads area. Persons within this area should take all necessary actions to protect life and property from rising water. Promptly follow all instructions, including evacuation orders, from local officials. There is also the possibility of life-threatening inundation during the next 48 hours at most coastal locations between the North Carolina/Virginia border and Bridgeport, Connecticut.

RAINFALL: Hermine is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 4 to 8 inches from east-central to eastern North Carolina, far southeast Virginia into the coastal sections of the Delmarva peninsula and coastal southern New Jersey through Sunday. These rains may cause life-threatening floods and flash floods. Heavy rains may affect coastal northern New Jersey and Long Island Sunday night into early Monday. Rainbands well to the south of Hermine may produce additional isolated rainfall totals of 3 to 5 inches over north Florida tonight into early Saturday.

TORNADOES: A tornado or two remains possible overnight across the North Carolina Outer Banks.
