Warm-Up Before Temps Take a Nose-Dive

Weather Update – 10:15 p.m. – Tuesday

A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for all of West Tennessee again with visibility that could be less than a quarter mile at times before 9 a.m. Wednesday. Conditions will otherwise be cloudy with a slight chance for a shower overnight. At their coolest tonight, temperatures will only be in the upper 40s and lower 50s as winds from the south cause temps to warm up overnight.

Expect another cloudy and damp day tomorrow with scattered showers possible. At least it will be warmer than it was today, since high temperatures are forecast to reach the upper 50s and lower 60s tomorrow afternoon! Rain will be much more likely on Thursday when a strong cold front moves into the area to bring arctic air back in to drop temperatures significantly.

We’re watching a potential for a wintry mix on Friday and the latest models are coming into more agreement as to when the change from rain to the wintry mix could occur. We’re mainly watching the morning hours of Friday to see the switch over to freezing rain and sleet. Depending on how long the moisture sticks around, we could also see that sleet then change to snow, it all depends on which track the low pressure system takes. Right now, “Model C” is looking more likely for our area.
