Scattered Storms Wednesday Afternoon and Evening

Weather Update – 10:30 p.m. – Tuesday, August 28th

It’s been a while since we’ve had any significant rainfall in West Tennessee. In fact, it’s been over a month since we had a daily rainfall total over an inch in Jackson. If you’re looking for rain, a cold front will influence our weather by bringing some scattered showers and thunderstorms to West Tennessee tomorrow and Thursday. Some parts of West Tennessee are still dealing with abnormally dry conditions but a decent amount of rainfall is possible before the month ends on Friday!

After another hot and humid afternoon, we’ll get another mild and muggy night! A few showers are still showing up in the Mid-South this afternoon but the activity will remain isolated overnight with only a slight chance for rain. Under mostly clear skies, temperatures will drop to the lower and middle 70s by Wednesday morning.

Hot and humid again on Wednesday with highs in the 90s but the chance for rain is looking more likely tomorrow. Most of the morning and early afternoon will remain dry but by late afternoon and evening, showers and thunderstorms will move into northwest TN and continue pushing southeast.


Some thunderstorms may produce heavy showers and frequent lightning so stay weather aware! Not everyone will get rain but those that do could get 0.5″ to 1.00″ with isolated totals of 1″ or more showing up.
