A cold front will try to impact our weather for Columbus Day across West Tennessee. Forecast models are indicating a cold front will move close to the area on Monday. As of now the forecast is calling for a 40% chance for rain and weak storms with partly cloudy skies for the holiday. Highs on Monday will reach the low 80s and could be warmer if the front doesn’t make it. If the front passes by highs, Tuesday and Wednesday will make it to around 80° with overnight lows falling down to around 60°. Mostly sunny skies and pleasant weather is expected for the middle of next week. We will be tracking the systems that will be approaching this weekend and early next week in the Storm Team Weather Center in the meantime.
