Strong Storms Possible Overnight, Severe Weather Threat Through Tuesday

Monday Night Forecast Update

Monday Night Forecast for May 3rd:

The initial threat for severe storms this evening hasn’t materialized and fizzled out to our north in Missouri. The second threat is picking up steam though and moving into Western Arkansas around 9:30 PM. These storms are moving at 45 MPH and are 270 Miles away. At this speed they will cross the Mississippi River between 2:30 AM and 3:30 AM. They could produce winds up to 70 MPH and a few tornadoes so be sure to leave your ringer up overnight on your phone to get any alerts to dangerous weather that could be heading your way early in the morning.

Storm chances will increase overnight and move into West Tennessee during the early morning hours. Gusty winds will be the most likely threat with these storms but tornadoes are definitely a possibility tonight.  Skies will become cloudy, winds will come out of the south and we should dip into the mid 60s by the morning.

Storms are expected to come in a few rounds on Tuesday. The first threat will be early in the morning and linger until the mid morning hours. More storms are possible in the afternoon and a third round of storms could show up in the late evening hours. It could be a long stormy day and you need to take this threat seriously.  Just like tonight, gusty winds will be the main threat, but some isolated hail events and a few tornadoes will be more then possible at times during the day on Tuesday. Skies will be cloudy most of the day, winds will be breezy out of the southwest and highs will make it into the upper 70s depending on who gets a break from the storms in the afternoon hours. Storms should clear out overnight into Wednesday morning.

Skies should clear out some and the winds will come out of the north. Morning lows will be down near 50° each day and highs will climb up to around 70°. Showers are NOT expected but a few quick showers cannot be ruled out on Thursday. Overall, dry, cool and mild weather is expected for the middle and end of the work week.


The winds will change direction on this weekend and start to come out of the south. This will warm most of West Tennessee back up near 80° and keep nighttime lows in the low 60s. But it will also bring some storm chances back. Storms are more likely on Sunday and next Monday then they are on Saturday, but some late rain could return on Saturday evening as well. It is also expected to be breezy at times this weekend with southerly winds also increasing the humidity this weekend.


We are now officially in Spring and now in our peak severe weather season. So you need to stay weather aware to changing weather patterns and monitor the forecasts closely. We got you covered in the WBBJ 7 Storm Team Weather Center as always.
