Scattered Showers and Thunderstorms on Tuesday

Weather Update – 11:15 p.m. – September, August 17th

Mostly clear skies and low humidity characterized the weather in West Tennessee this afternoon. Today’s average temperature (75°F) was a degree cooler than the average temperature on March 27th! Temperatures still managed to peak in the upper 80s and lower 90s after starting around 60°F this morning in Jackson but there’s cooler weather ahead! A cold front will come through tomorrow bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms – our best chance for rain the rest of the week.

Though unlikely, there is a slight chance for rain in northwest Tennessee early Tuesday morning before sunrise under mostly clear to partly cloudy skies. Thanks to lower humidity, temperatures will fall into the lower 60s.


Expect temperatures to peak in the middle 80s tomorrow but with partly cloudy skies and a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. A cold front will come through on Tuesday so keep the umbrella handy just in case! The risk for severe weather is low but there’s a chance for stray thunderstorms in the afternoon and early evening. Additional showers are possible each following day this week.
