Weather Update – 10:00 p.m. Friday

Scattered showers are moving through parts of the Deep South with heavy showers and thunderstorms along the Gulf of Mexico. A few heavy rain showers were coming down in eastern Arkansas but most of West Tennessee has been dry so far tonight. Temperatures will continue to remain mild overnight.

Temperatures will drop to the upper 40s and lower to middle 50s by the sunrise at 6:39 a.m. Saturday. A stray thunderstorm within the scattered rain showers is possible Saturday morning but the best chance for lightning will be along the Tennessee-Mississippi border and points south. The threat for severe weather is low. Our best chance for rain is from just before dawn into the early afternoon tomorrow.

Breaks of sunshine could make for record warm temperatures on Sunday and Presidents’ Day! The Spring-like weather is expected to continue through most of next week with rain returning Monday night.
