Slight Chance for Isolated Showers On Thursday
Weather Update – 10:30 p.m. – Wednesday, September 11th
For the first time since 2005, West Tennessee has stayed rain-free through the first third of the month of September! Our dry stretch will continue tomorrow with a low chance for rain and more heat and humidity! The temperature felt like it was over 100°F this afternoon in Jackson and there’s more heat ahead until cloudier skies and a wetter forecast cool things down a tad early next week.
Another quiet night is forecast across West Tennessee tonight with overnight low temperatures in the lower 70s by sunrise. Skies will become mostly clear overnight with sunshine forecast to return tomorrow.
Mostly clear skies will continue in West Tennessee tomorrow with highs back in the lower 90s – so expect it to feel like 100°F again tomorrow afternoon! One or two isolated showers are possible during the afternoon and early evening hours but rain looks more likely early next week. In fact, there may be some tropical development in the Gulf of Mexico early next week. I’m tracking a disturbance south of the Bahamas that could develop into “Humberto” in the next 5 days. There’s a 70% chance for that storm to develop to become a tropical depression and some models have this storm turning in our direction, so stay with WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News for the latest forecast and keep up with Storm Team Weather online too for more updates.
