Warming Up Midweek Before Rain Returns

Weather Update – 11:15 p.m. – Monday, December 17th

Temperatures warmed up into the upper 50s this afternoon under sunny skies, but we’ll be getting close to the freezing mark overnight! There’s a chance for a little bit of fog to form in the Mid-South again – especially in the lower-lying areas and area river basins.

Mostly clear skies will become cloudier as the night goes on with another opportunity for some dense fog to form in West Tennessee especially in low elevation areas and river basins. Winds will be light from the north allowing temperatures to drop to the lower 30s at the coldest point of the night. It’s possible that we may have bridges over area creeks, streams, and rivers accumulating ice from freezing fog especially in the coldest parts of West Tennessee Tuesday morning.

After some fog, we’ll see mostly sunny skies for the rest of the day. This will allow temperatures to warm up to the lower and middle 50s at the warmest point of the day. We’ll stay dry, but rain will return Wednesday night to continue to take away the distance between 2018 (73.77″) and the record wettest year on record (75.98″).
