Down to Single Digits for Some Tonight
Weather Update – 11:00 p.m. – Thursday
We’ve certainly had our fill of the cold weather! Temperatures have started at or below 13°F for the last 5 days in a row! The record for that streak is 6 days, and we’ll likely tie that tomorrow morning. Slowly but surely, warmer weather is forecast to return, but it’ll still feel cold. After lighter winds tomorrow, conditions will get quite breezy again this weekend. There are 75 days until Spring!
Winds won’t be as much of a factor since they’ll be lighter tonight but under mostly clear to partly cloudy skies, temperatures will drop to the upper single digits and lower teens early Friday in West Tennessee. This will be the coldest night on the 7-day forecast before the warmer weather returns over the weekend.
After starting out in the lower teens Friday morning, temperatures will warm back up to the freezing mark during the afternoon. Skies will be mostly clear with light winds so wind chills won’t be far from the actual temperatures. The weekend will feature increasing winds and with temperatures in the lower to middle 30s on Saturday it’ll feel like we’re in the 20s at the warmest point of the day, but when winds start coming from the south on Sunday, we’ll get back into the 40s.
Rain is forecast to return on Sunday. Although briefly, it’s possible that precipitation begins as sleet with little to no impact on travel. In any case, stay with WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News for updates to the forecast, and keep up with Storm Team Weather online too for more updates.
