Showers and Thunderstorms Tonight and Tomorrow

Weather Update – 11:15 p.m. – Tuesday, February 4th

So far, over 1″ of rain has fallen but more is on the way! Generally, 1-3″ of rain is expected between what we get today and see through Thursday morning but localized totals of higher amounts are possible. We have one of the wettest 2-year periods in Jackson’s history since 2004 based on how many days we’ve recorded rainfall over that time.

Showers will continue to fall for another hour or two in Jackson with drier weather slowly returning to West Tennessee after midnight. We’ll only get a brief break in the rain with showers gradually returning after sunrise. Dense fog is developing and may continue to limit visibility for the morning commute Wednesday.

More rain is expected tomorrow with a risk for severe weather in southwest Tennessee in the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will be cooler tomorrow with the passage of a cold front taking place, so those areas south of the front – mainly near the Tennessee-Mississippi border and points south – are at risk for damaging winds and isolated tornadoes.
