Frost Advisory Issued for West Tennessee
Weather Update – 10:30 p.m. – Thursday
A Frost Advisory has been issued for nearly all of West Tennessee from 1 a.m. to 9 a.m. Friday. A Frost Advisory means that widespread frost is expected. Sensitive outdoor plants may be killed if left uncovered. The counties colored in blue show where a frost is likeliest.
Temperatures have been slow to fall tonight so far but are still expected to drop to the middle 30s by sunrise tomorrow morning so make sure those plants are covered or brought inside! We need light winds to form frost overnight and it looks like we’ll have just that. Skies will become mostly clear overnight as well. This may be our last frost for Spring 2018.
Tomorrow will be warmer as temperatures will warm up to the middle 60s Friday afternoon! Look for clear skies and with winds from the northeast at 5 to 10 miles per hour. We’ll be able to stay dry throughout the day and continue to receive rain-free conditions until late Saturday night. Showers will be likely to return on Sunday when another substantial amount of rain may fall. We could end up dealing with rain for most of the day on Sunday, and the latest data continues to indicate at least 1″ of rain for West Tennessee.
Showers will remain possible off-and-on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday next week as well. Stay with WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News for the latest forecast rainfall totals and keep up with Storm Team Weather Online too for more updates.
