Weather Update – 10:30 p.m. Monday
A Freeze Watch is in effect for all of West Tennessee from Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, but a Freeze Warning is in effect from tonight through Tuesday morning for Lake, Obion, Weakley, and Dyer counties. Patchy black ice could form especially on bridges and overpasses but sensitive vegetation could be killed if left unprotected in below freezing temperatures.
A few rain showers, even flurries, will be possible tonight as temperatures drop to the lower and middle 30s by sunrise at 7:07 a.m. Tuesday. As winds increase to 10-15 miles per hour, water will evaporate off the roads leaving ice-free conditions for most, but patchy black ice is still possible especially on bridges. If you have outdoor plants and you want to keep them from damage tonight, you’ll want to cover or protect them in some way, especially in northwest Tennessee. Wind chills will be in the middle to upper 20s when we head out the door tomorrow morning.
Some parts of West Tennessee may stay below 40°F at the warmest part of the day with windy conditions through the afternoon. Winds will make temperatures feel like they’re near freezing for most of the day. Temperatures could set record lows on Wednesday and Thursday mornings with temperatures in the upper teens to lower and middle 20s.
