As of now Friday appears to be in the middle of 2 storms systems and appears as of now to be a mostly dry day. The showers should clear on late Thursday and then could return Saturday afternoon as the next system begins to move on in. We will keep an eye on the timing of the weekend’s front and see just how long the mid week disturbance hangs around for before we have a lot of confidence in Friday Night’s forecast just yet. Highs on Friday are forecast to reach the mid 80s and Friday night lows could drop into the low to mid 60s. Winds on Friday should be light and come out of the east.


Some of the long term forecast models are hinting at a cold front working through West Tennessee this weekend. Right now the timing and strength and overall impacts on the front on us is a bit sketchy, but will be keeping a close eye on the situation as the week progresses. Right now chances for rain and storms look better on Sunday the Saturday, but that could change. Highs this weekend will hover around the 80° mark with lows dropping into the 50s by Monday morning.
