A Warm And Humid Weekend, Cooler Next Week
Weather Update – 7:00 AM – Saturday, June 19th
Happy Saturday Everyone On This June 19th. Warm and humid weather will be with us over the weekend as Tropical Storm Claudette passes by just to our south. The only effects we’ll have are occasional clouds from the northern fringe areas of Claudette and a very slight chance of a short lived shower with most of us getting through the entire weekend without any rain. The heat index will be high again today with the mix of higher dewpoints and lower 90’s for high temperatures.
Partly sunny, warm, and humid with highs around 90-92. South winds at around 5 to 10 mph.
Tropical Storm Claudette will gradually weaken and move into Alabama and Georgia.
Claudette is not expected to bring little to no impacts to the west Tennessee area. A slight chance of a shower exists for Sunday afternoon but most of us will escape rain over the weekend.

Showers and storms will be likely on Monday with the passage of a cold front. Rain will be heavy at times with rumbles of thunder. There will be a marginal (Lower End) threat for any severe weather on Monday as well.

Clouds move in on Wednesday but a partly-sunny day is still at hand. Highs in the lower 80’s can be expected as winds shift to the south once again. Lows in the upper 60’s can be expected.
