Warmer Weather Returns This Weekend

Weather Update – 10:30 p.m. – Friday, December 21st

Cold and cloudy conditions kept our afternoon temperatures in the 30s for most of West Tennessee this afternoon. The cold weather is rather appropriate for the first day of Winter but warmer weather is in the weekend forecast!

Skies are getting clearer in West Tennessee with clear skies developing from west to east. A potential exists for dense fog to form in West Tennessee early Saturday morning with visibility less than a mile in some areas. Along with below freezing temperatures, this could cause freezing fog to form, so watch for patchy ice on area bridges in the morning. Temperatures will drop to the middle and upper 20s by sunrise Saturday.

After the fog, temperatures will warm up to the middle and upper 50s under sunny skies. The forecast high for Jackson is 57°F. Tomorrow will be a beautiful day across the area with clear skies forecast to stick around through the evening leading to a potential for fog to reform by Sunday morning. Temperatures will drop to the upper 30s by Sunday morning with a potential for scattered rain showers in West Tennessee early on in the day. The best chance for rain is south of I-40 and near the Tennessee river but sunshine should return by sunset Sunday afternoon if not earlier. We’re still not confident with the forecast for Christmas Day with some models showing rain and some wet.
