Another Stretch of Extreme Heat Heading Our Way

Weather Update – 11:00 p.m. – Thursday, September 26th

West Tennessee continues to switch between two extremes! Today, high temperatures stayed in the upper 70s in Madison county – the first time that’s happened in 107 days. We’re about to jump back into and extremely hot and humid pattern over the next week so I hope you had a chance to enjoy the cooler weather while it lasted! We’ll be fairly dry for a little while again which is a shame considering that a decent size plot of West Tennessee is now in a moderate drought. It’s the first time that we’ve had a moderate drought in Madison County since the week before Christmas in 2016.

Now that the rain is gone we’ll see mostly clear skies overnight. Our weather will stay humid overnight keeping temperatures to the middle and upper 60s at the coolest point of the night. Patchy fog will be possible in West Tennessee in spots that see clear skies with light winds early tomorrow. Visibility may be close to a mile or less early on Friday.

After the morning fog mixes out tomorrow, temperatures will warm up to the lower 90s under sunny skies. There’s a small chance we could have an isolated shower or two near the Tennessee River in the afternoon, but most areas will be dry tomorrow. Temperatures will be in the middle 80s at kick off of high school football games Friday night. Tomorrow begins another long stretch of hot and dry weather for West Tennessee.
