Weather Update – 10:45 p.m. Tuesday

Expect mostly clear skies to continue overnight but conditions will remain dry. Temperatures will drop to the lower and middle 50s by sunrise at 6:46 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies are expected Wednesday with a slight chance for rain in the morning as a warm front moves through the region. Temperatures are forecast to reach highs in the lower to middle 80s!

On Thursday, a series of cold fronts will sweep through West Tennessee bringing a risk for strong to severe thunderstorms once again. The first wave arriving in West Tennessee between 4 a.m. and 9 a.m. has a slight chance for severe weather between the Mississippi River and west and along a line from roughly Martin to Bolivar. If the sun comes out later in the morning and afternoon then the second wave coming between 3 p.m. and 10 p.m. could contain severe thunderstorms for more of West Tennessee. At this moment, nearly all of West Tennessee is, once again, under an enhanced risk for severe weather Thursday afternoon and evening.

The main threats will be large hail and damaging winds but a few tornadoes will be possible as well, especially during the afternoon and evening on Thursday. Clearer skies and calmer conditions are expected over the weekend.
