Record breaking heat continues

Weather Update: 10:05 PM Sunday

Today we hit a high of 88 degrees in the Hub City breaking the record of 85 set in 1961. The abnormally warm temperatures look to stick around all week. There is a slight cool down in the forecast by the end of the week along with a cold front that could bring some scattered rain through West Tennessee, but the temps still will remain a few degrees above normal.

Tonight temperatures are expected to fall back into the upper 50s to low 60s. It’ll be a mild and comfortable night again. Rinse and repeat to what we’ve seen, these warmer than normal temps are up to 10 degrees higher than they should be for overnight lows.

Halloween looks like a pleasant SUMMER day. We could break another afternoon high record, the previous is 86 degrees set back in 1984. Afternoon temps for West Tennessee soar back into the mid and upper 80s. The record heat stick around going into the start of the month of November.

As mentioned before, there is a slight cool down this week but it still remain above where temperatures should be for this time of year. There is a chance for some scattered light rain by Thursday but not everyone will be lucky enough to see it. West Tennessee definitely needs the rain but it will be a broken line along the frontal system that pushes through. There will be some cooler air that follows the front but temps still stay in the low to mid 70s, where they should be in the upper 60s to low 70s.
