Hit-or-Miss Showers and Thunderstorms Tomorrow

Weather Update – 11:30 p.m. – Tuesday, March 17th

A break in the rain will likely continue overnight but showers may return tomorrow for the 10th day in a row. Over the next two days, showers and thunderstorms will be hit-or-miss but a cold front coming through Thursday night is expected to bring a round of heavy rain and thunderstorms into West Tennessee.


Skies will be clear to partly cloudy overnight with light winds from the northeast. Temperatures will drop to the upper 40s and lower 50s at the coolest point of the night, and we’ll stay rain-free.

It’s going to be a warm day on Wednesday – the last day of Winter! Under partly to mostly cloudy skies, temperatures will reach the 70s in the afternoon with a chance for passing showers and thunderstorms. If showers do move through tomorrow, it’ll be the 10th consecutive day with rainfall – the longest stretch since April 28th to May 7th in 2006.

While the overall risk for severe weather is low on Wednesday, I’m growing a bit concerned with the afternoon and early evening hours. Although unlikely, a severe thunderstorm is possible and it could pose a high impact if there’s enough energy in the atmosphere on Wednesday.
