Hot and Humid Week Ahead

Weather Update – 11:00 p.m. – Monday, May 20th

Showers and thunderstorms occurring in Texas and Oklahoma today and tonight are where the Storm Prediction Center earlier issued a rare “high risk” for severe weather. As for West Tennessee, we’re expecting a calm night ahead and mostly quiet day tomorrow, but those showers and thunderstorms will try to move east and cross the Mississippi River by this time tomorrow.

Skies will be mostly clear to partly cloudy overnight with temperatures dropping to the middle 60s by sunrise Tuesday. We’ll be dry overnight but with a slight chance for a stray shower early Tuesday morning in northwest Tennessee.

It’s going to be a hot and mostly sunny day tomorrow with a little boost in the humidity! Temperatures will peak near 90°F with Jackson still not having reached 90°F yet this year. We’ll be mostly dry until a squall line from the storms out west closes in on West Tennessee toward midnight. The chance for rain is highest near the Mississippi River where there’s a marginal (1 out of 5) to slight (2 out of 5) risk for severe weather. We may see some redevelopment in the area on Wednesday in the form of scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms.
