Hot and Humid Through the Fourth of July Weekend

Weather Update – 11:00 p.m. – Thursday, July 2nd

We’ve had a dry day across West Tennessee, and that was much needed for those who dealt with flooding yesterday. We can expect rain chances to be low for the next few days but they’ll still stay above 0%. Be prepared for a pop-up shower or thunderstorm tomorrow through Sunday. The theme of the forecast is “hot and humid” as we head into the Fourth of July weekend!


Rain chances are low overnight, and skies will be mostly clear. Muggy conditions and saturated soils in West Tennessee may yet again allow for dense fog to form Friday morning. Visibilities could be less than a mile just after sunrise tomorrow. Temperatures will start in the upper 60s and lower 70s.


Expect another hot and humid day tomorrow! Temperatures will feel like the upper 90s to lower 100s in many areas at the warmest point of the day with actual temperatures in the lower 90s. There’s a slight chance for a stray shower or thunderstorm tomorrow but the potential for rain is highest near the Mississippi River and between the late morning through early evening. Additional scattered storms are possible on Saturday near the Tennessee-Mississippi border. Latest forecast data shows 0.50″ to 1″ of rainfall over the next seven days. We’ve already had 35.70″ so far in Jackson, and an average year only has around 52″!
