Warming Trend Well Under Way
Weather Update – 11:00 p.m. – Wednesday, November 18th
As forecast, temperatures peaked in the middle 60s in Jackson and many other parts of West Tennessee this afternoon. A warming trend is well under way now that winds are back out of the south which will likely keep our temperatures above freezing tonight. This should allow for highs near 70°F over the next several afternoons before another cold front comes early next week.
Clear skies tonight will come with light south winds across West Tennessee. Temperatures will likely drop to 40°F or slightly below but should be able to stay above freezing. Don’t forget to download the new WBBJ Weather app on your Android device or iPhone to stay ahead of the weather where you are!
Expect a sunny day tomorrow with highs in the lower 70s during the afternoon. It’ll be a beautiful day but breezy at times with south winds at 10 to 15 miles per hour. A combination of low humidity, gusty winds, and warm temperatures will create an elevated risk for fire danger in northwest Tennessee, so be careful if you’re conducting a prescribed burn on your land or just burning brush! Rain will hold off for a few more days before returning early next week with a series of cold fronts in the days before and after Thanksgiving.
