Cold Front Coming Through Wednesday Night into Thursday
Weather Update – 11:15 p.m. – Tuesday, March 12th
A Wind Advisory has been issued for 13 counties in West Tennessee from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday. This includes Crockett, Dyer, Fayette, Gibson, Hardeman, Haywood, Lake, Lauderdale, Madison, Obion, Shelby, Tipton, and Weakley counties. Southerly winds of 20-30 mph with gusts to 45 mph are possible. Drivers of high-profile vehicles may experience difficulty so be careful driving on highways and interstates across West Tennessee. Tie down any loose items in your yard as well or you may find them in your neighbors yard!
Skies have been mixed with sun and clouds today and a few showers are showing up on radar in the area. Warmer weather is probably something you’ve been looking forward to a lot this month in West Tennessee. As of yesterday, the first ⅓ of March had been the 7th coldest on record with an average temperature of 39.9°F. How do highs in the 70s sound?
We’ll continue to see a slight chance for rain overnight under cloudier skies with temperatures only dropping to the lower and middle 50s at the coolest point of the night. Rain is a lot more likely tomorrow night with gusty winds.
Winds from the south will gradually become stronger tomorrow at 10 to 20 miles per hour but these southerly winds will bring temperatures into the lower 70s tomorrow! There’s only a slight chance for rain during the daylight hours on Wednesday – mainly in the morning – but wet weather is much more likely tomorrow night with a marginal risk for severe weather. We’ll see a couple of round of heavy showers and thunderstorms from this upcoming cold front coming through West Tennessee.
