The Weekend Kicks Off To Good Weather
Friday Morning Forecast Update for September 3rd:
We certainly enjoyed a fall like morning to start our Friday with the upper 50’s very common across west Tennessee. A mix of sun and clouds today with temperatures in the mid 80’s but another day of lower dewpoints will have today feeling pretty comfortable again.
Nice and mild weather will continue tonight across West Tennessee and continue for Friday and most of the day Saturday. Some showers or weak storms could move in late Saturday with Sunday morning/early afternoon being the most likely time to encounter some rain through the holiday weekend. Labor day is looking mostly sunny and quite hot.

Highs will make it into the mid 80s on Saturday and partly cloudy skies are expected. A weak front will drift through the area late Saturday into Sunday and could bring a few passing showers with it, rain chances currently only sit around 30% late Saturday and 50% Sunday morning and afternoon. The winds will come more out of the northwest into the day on Sunday as the front drifts through before shifting to the northeast Labor Day morning behind the weak frontal boundary. Morning lows will fall down to the mid 60s each morning.
Mostly sunny skies and warm weather is expected for your Labor Day. Highs will make it up to the upper 80s and the winds will start to come out of the southeast towards the end of the day increasing the humidity some and above normal temperatures will return for the beginning of next week.

Rain chances are not expected on Monday but the next front could try to move through next Tuesday and could bring some showers and storms with it.
Another front is expected to pass through late Tuesday bringing a few showers and some storm activity that is expected to linger into Wednesday morning.
