Scattered Thunderstorms Return on Thursday

Weather Update – 11:00 p.m. – Tuesday, April 16th

Temperatures peaked in the middle to upper 70s this afternoon under mostly sunny skies in West Tennessee. We have similar warm weather to look forward to tomorrow but without the same sunshine we saw today – it’s getting cloudy! There’s a chance for showers and thunderstorms on Thursday, and there’s a low chance for some thunderstorms to become strong or severe.

Clouds will continue to increase in coverage over West Tennessee skies tonight. This could lead to temperatures staying in the middle and upper 50s at the coolest point of the night, so temperatures should remain mild!

Expect partly to mostly cloudy skies tomorrow, but temperatures will warm up to the upper 70s and close to 80°F in some spots during the afternoon. Mostly dry weather is forecast for Wednesday with only a 20% chance for a stray shower, but thunderstorms return on Thursday. All of West Tennessee is in a slight risk for severe weather.

The main concern is parts of West Tennessee south of I-40 near the Tennessee River – especially those close to Savannah. If any thunderstorms become strong, the main concern is with damaging winds.
