Scattered Storms This Afternoon and Evening

Weather Update – 7:00 p.m. Tuesday

Scattered showers and thunderstorms moving east-southeast across West Tennessee this evening ahead of an oncoming cold front. Some of the showers have resulted in flash flooding and frequent lightning occurred in large areas of thunderstorms so far. All of West Tennessee is under a marginal risk for severe weather with a primary concern for damaging winds, and a secondary concern for large hail as it pertains to severe weather but the threat remains low.

TONIGHT
Scattered showers will remain possible overnight, but most of the rain will fall during the first half of the evening. Most of the rain will be gone by 10 p.m. or sooner. Skies will remain mostly cloudy overnight with temperatures dropping to the upper 60s and lower 70s at the coolest point of the night.

Tomorrow will be cooler with skies gradually becoming clearer during the day on Wednesday. We’ll likely remain in that kind of pattern for the next several days, with highs in the lower to middle 80s through the weekend. However, we’re monitoring the Gulf of Mexico for possible tropical development that could impact West Tennessee over the weekend and early next week.
