TONIGHT:

Cloudy skies are expected and rain showers will move in from the south as the night goes on. Most of the rain will stay in our southern counties. Overnight lows will drop down to around 40°. Winds are expected to be light out of the east. A few rumbles of thunder cannot be ruled out, but strong storms are not expected.

FRIDAY:

Heavy rain showers and possibly some storms will return to West Tennessee on Friday. Some storms could be strong, but a severe weather outbreak seems quite unlikely at this time.  We should get a break in the afternoon between the two rounds of showers. Skies will be mostly cloudy, winds will be light out the east and highs will make it into the mid 50s.

No photo description available.

THE WEEKEND:

Heavy rain showers and storms will continue in West Tennessee during the weekend. Between the several rounds of showers and storms,  2-4″ of rain will fall across the area before the showers clear out early Monday. Some storms could produce hail and gusty winds but as of now, the tornado threat seems very minimal or non existent but we will be keeping a close eye on it in the WBBJ 7 Storm Team Weather Center.  Highs should be in the 60s again though for both Saturday and Sunday with lows in the mid to upper 40s Saturday night and temperatures staying near 60° Sunday night.

EARLY NEXT WEEK:

We are expecting some clearing towards the middle of the week but be sure to keep that umbrella handy for the first half of the week. Highs on Monday and Tuesday are only expected to be in the low to mid 50s and lows could drop back down to the mid 30s Monday night.
