Fall-like Weather Expected to Continue Through Midweek

Weather Update – 10:45 p.m. – Tuesday, August 21st

It’s been a cloudy and breezy day in West Tennessee with temperatures only in the upper 70s or lower 80s this afternoon. So far, the unofficial high temperature reached 82°F but we may have reached 84°F shortly after that observation was taken. August typically has 1-2 days in the month with high temperatures at or below 81°F and there’s more of this cool weather in the forecast!

The “cool” afternoon will also be followed by a comfortable night with perfect conditions for keeping the windows down in the house! Under mostly cloudy skies, temperatures will drop to the middle 60s tonight partly cloudy skies by Wednesday morning. Low-lying fog is possible early on tomorrow with limited visibility especially likely in the river valleys.

Just like today, temperatures won’t be warming up very much tomorrow afternoon. A mix of sun and clouds with northwest winds at 5 to 10 miles per hour should keep highs to the lower 80s without any rain. Temperatures could get even cooler in the days to come!

The dew points will be even lower Thursday morning making it feel very comfortable in West Tennessee. Odds are, some areas will start with temperatures in the upper 50s making it the coolest morning since June 6th!
