Scattered Storms Return Tomorrow
Weather Update – 11:00 p.m. – Tuesday, August 11th
Much-needed rainfall finally returned to West Tennessee today, but not everyone got the benefit of the wet weather. In fact, some of those who dealt with strong thunderstorms producing gusty winds and frequent lightning had an estimated 5″ of rainfall or more but many of us saw 0″. We’ll continue to see a marginal risk (1 out of 5) for severe weather through the rest of the day with another chance for thunderstorms tomorrow.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will taper off for the rest of the night under cloudy skies blocking our view of the Perseids Meteor Shower. Temperatures will drop to the lower 70s by sunrise Wednesday under cloudy skies with light winds.
If you’ve missed the rain today, another chance for rain is in the forecast tomorrow! Some showers and thunderstorms is possible in the morning but they look likelier after noon through the evening. A couple of thunderstorms could become strong or severe but the risk for severe weather is still low so most won’t have to worry about that. We should be cautious for localized issues with flash flooding that could result from slow-moving thunderstorms. Temperatures will peak in the middle 80s Wednesday afternoon with warmer weather ahead later this week.
