One More Day with Extreme Heat Tomorrow
Weather Update – 10:30 p.m. – Tuesday, August 20th
Showers and thunderstorms have finally left West Tennessee this evening after bringing heavy rain and gusty winds to some areas. Not everyone in West Tennessee saw rain, but more will before the weekend. In the meantime, it’ll stay hot and humid with a heat advisory in effect until tomorrow night!
Showers will continue to leave the Mid-South overnight, but skies may remain cloudy until early Wednesday morning. Temperatures will drop to the lower 70s by sunrise.
Mostly sunny skies will start the day tomorrow, and we have another opportunity for a heat index at or over 105°F in the afternoon so stay cool! The heat advisory is set to expire Wednesday at 8 p.m. with triple digit heat indices expected during the afternoon and early evening. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible tomorrow evening again in a similar fashion to what we had tonight and there’s a marginal risk for severe thunderstorms in northwest Tennessee. More rain is likely Thursday through Sunday with an additional 0.50″ to 1.50″ of rain possible.
