West Tennessee Stays Hot into the Weekend

Weather Update – 8:00 a.m. Thursday

A Heat Advisory is now in effect all of west Tennessee until 7 p.m. Friday. The heat index could reach between 105°F and 109°F at the warmest points of the afternoon in these areas. But no matter where you live in West Tennessee, it’s going to be hot!

Temperatures will be slow to cool down tonight with muggy conditions. Expect temperatures to drop to just the lower and middle 70s at the coolest point of the night under mainly clear skies with calm winds. Tomorrow will be another hot day as high pressure centers itself over West Tennessee. This will keep conditions mainly dry until the weekend. Increasing humidity could lead to the temperatures feeling like they’re close to or over 105°F at times Thursday. Actual temperatures will reach highs in the middle 90s for the third day in a row.

Friday is expected to bring more of the same heat and humidity. Scattered storms will return this weekend allowing temperatures to feel slightly cooler. Next Monday and Tuesday, we could have some areas that barely reach 90°F at the warmest part of the day!
