Frost Advisory Issued for Parts of West Tennessee
Weather Update – 10:30 p.m. – Monday
A Frost Advisory has been issued for several counties in West Tennessee near the Tennessee River and portions of northwest Tennessee from 1 a.m. to 8 a.m. Tuesday. This includes Benton, Carroll, Decatur, Gibson, Hardin, Henderson, Henry, Lake, Obion, and Weakley counties. A Frost Advisory means that widespread frost is expected. Sensitive outdoor plants may be killed if left uncovered. Patchy frost will also be possible in parts of West Tennessee not in the advisory, but those counties colored in blue show where a frost is likeliest.
Temperatures will drop to the lower and middle 30s by sunrise tomorrow morning so it’s not time to put those plants in just yet! We need light winds to form frost overnight and it looks like we’ll have just that.
Thankfully, tomorrow will be much warmer as temperatures will warm up over 35°F from morning to afternoon! Highs will be in the lower to middle 70s Tuesday afternoon with mostly clear skies and only a few clouds late in the morning and early afternoon. We’ll be able to stay dry throughout the day but there’s a slight chance for rain on Wednesday when a cold front comes through. Right now, it doesn’t look like most of West Tennessee will see rain, but the best chance for showers will be near the Tennessee River from the later hours of the morning through the afternoon.
