Pop-Up Showers and T’storms in the Forecast

Weather Update – 11:15 p.m. – Tuesday, April 30th

Mostly clear to partly cloudy skies remain overhead in West Tennessee tonight but high pressure over the southeastern United States continues to shield our area from the showers and thunderstorms out to our north and west. The conveyor belt of storms across Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas will gradually translate east toward Tennessee on Thursday, but we may see some scattered showers tomorrow.

Partly cloudy skies will likely continue tonight with more of the same warm and muggy weather we’ve been having during this last day of the month. Temperatures will drop to the lower and middle 60s by sunrise. There’s an increasing potential for scattered showers and thunderstorms starting Wednesday morning.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible tomorrow, but not everyone will get the rain. Be ready with a rain coat or umbrella just in case! Temperatures will warm up to the lower and middle 80s again during the afternoon. Showers left over from the storms in Arkansas and Missouri may produce light rain here in the morning with isolated thunderstorms developing along remnant outflow boundaries possible in the afternoon.

Northwest Tennessee is under a marginal risk for severe weather Wednesday, with one or two thunderstorms possibly producing some gusty winds or small hail over the next two days, especially in that area in the darker green.
