Less Widespread, But Heavy Rain Continues to Fall in Spots

Weather Update – 10:30 p.m. – Monday, September 24th

A few showers continue to move through the Mid-South tonight, but we’re just now wrapping up a significant rainfall event, in which, over a 4-day period (Friday through Monday), brought over 7″ of rain to some areas. There’s more rain coming and area rivers are now cresting from runoff but a cold front coming through on Wednesday will usher some drier and much cooler weather in soon!

Scattered showers will remain in the area tonight with a 20% chance for rain overnight. Dense fog is possible tonight so along with minor flooding be especially cautious when out driving – be on the lookout for low visibility and avoid flooded roads at all costs. Temperatures will only drop to the lower 70s by sunrise Tuesday.

Scattered showers are possible again on Tuesday. We’ll see some thunderstorms too with a mix of sun and clouds and one or two of these thunderstorms could be strong, especially in northwest Tennessee. Temperatures will warm up to the lower and middle 80s at the warmest point of tomorrow afternoon. The cold front will come through Wednesday morning bringing temperatures down to the lower 50s by sunrise Thursday!
