Rain Likely on Thursday

Weather Update – 10:45 p.m. – Tuesday, November 5th

After overcast skies this morning, the first cold front came through today without much incident! There really hasn’t been a significant change in temperature for West Tennessee today, but we’ll be expecting a lot more fanfare with the next front! Temperatures will be colder and rain is much more likely on Thursday when the next front comes through. Plus, winds will become gusty on Thursday afternoon causing temperatures to feel colder than the thermometer shows them on Friday morning.

TONIGHT
Clear skies will continue overnight across West Tennessee, and temperatures will be about as cold as they were last night. We will start out in the middle and upper 30s by sunrise on Wednesday with light winds.

After the chilly start, temperatures tomorrow afternoon will be mild again with highs in the middle to upper 60s under sunny skies that become cloudy by the evening. There’s a slight chance for rain near the Mississippi River during the afternoon and evening but showers are more likely heading into Thursday as “Cold Front Number Two” closes in on our viewing area. Rain showers will be arriving early Thursday morning and won’t leave until the afternoon. The risk for thunderstorms is low, much less the chance for any severe weather! However, it will get extremely cold by Friday! Temperatures will feel like the upper teens and lower twenties on Friday morning with winds between 10 and 15 mph. Break out the winter coats!
