Potential for Severe Weather This Evening
Weather Update – 11:00 p.m. – Tuesday, November 26th
West Tennessee is still under a level 1 to 2 out of 5 risk for severe weather tonight. There have been showers off-and-on today with limited thunderstorm activity so far, but later this evening a cold front will move through bringing strong wind gusts to the area. Stay weather aware, and make sure you have a way to receive weather watches and warnings from multiple sources!
Showers may still become accompanied by thunderstorms tonight and it’s possible that one or two thunderstorms may become strong. If any storms become strong, the main concern is for damaging winds but an isolated tornado near the Mississippi River cannot be ruled out. Winds may also gust over 40 mph outside of thunderstorms, so make sure if you have holiday decorations already up that they’re tied down! A Wind Advisory is in effect for nearly all of West Tennessee through 6 a.m. Wednesday. Temperatures will be dropping to the lower 50s by sunrise.
After a stormy night, we’ll see a mixture of sunshine and clouds on Wednesday. Temperatures will only warm up to the middle 50s during the afternoon with winds from the west-northwest gusting between 20 and 30 mph. Rain may return to some areas on Thanksgiving and on Black Friday but our next most likely chance for showers and thunderstorms falls on Saturday.
