Weather Update – 10:30 p.m. Tuesday

Clear skies tonight won’t be enough to put lows in the 40s like they were last night. Southerly winds will keep temperatures to the middle and upper 50s at the coolest point of the night.

Skies will be cloudier tomorrow than they were today especially near the Mississippi River where they could be overcast at times. High temperatures could reach the lower to middle 80s tomorrow under partly cloudy to mostly clear skies for most of our viewing area. Showers and thunderstorms will begin to cross the Mississippi River sometime between 6 and 8pm Wednesday night.

The western half of West Tennessee is under a slight risk for severe weather and the eastern half is under a marginal risk. Our primary concern is for damaging winds but large hail, flash flooding, and even an isolated tornado (low threat) are possible. Cooler weather will return on Thursday before the next system arrives providing us with a chance for more showers and thunderstorms from Friday into the weekend.

Make sure to tune in to WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News for the latest on our potential threats and keep in touch with the VIPIR 7 Storm Team on-air and online for more updates!
