Catch the latest details and your full weather forecast coming up
Skies will remain mostly clear tonight and the winds will be calm. It will be a bit chilly with overnight lows dropping down into the mid 40s. Clouds will increase late into the early morning hours on Tuesday.
Clouds will increase as the day goes on. Expect partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies during the afternoon and evening. Highs will still make it up to near 70° and the warmer areas will be the places where the sun peaks through in the afternoon. The winds will be light out of the south between 5-10 MPH. Overnight lows will fall down to the upper 40s overnight.
Some clouds will linger on Wednesday but we should see less cloud cover then we will see on Tuesday. Skies are expected to be mostly sunny in the afternoon with highs making it into the low 70s again. Winds will be a bit breezy at times as the next storm system gets a little closer and come out of the south. Lows will only fall to the mid to upper 50s due to the increasing clouds and higher dew point as gulf moisture will return to West Tennessee overnight.
Mostly cloudy skies, rain showers and some weak storms are expected to move through West Tennessee on Thursday for Veterans Day. Highs will make it into the 60s and depending on the timing of the front we could see highs in the upper 60s or low 60s. Winds will start out of the south and then switch to the west and possibly even the northwest behind the front. Severe weather or strong storms are currently not in the forecast but some thunder, lightning, heavy rain and brief increased wind gusts will be possible. Behind the front, lows will drop down to around 40° by Friday morning.
Behind Thursday’s cold front, cooler weather will be returning to the region. Highs on Friday should only reach the mid to upper 50s and clouds will decrease during the first half of the day. The mostly clear skies will make for another cold night for Friday Night Football playoffs across the area. Temperatures are expected to be in the low 40s for the football games but could drop down near freezing by Saturday morning. The winds will come out of the west or northwest during the day and they are likely to be weak.
We should see plenty of sunshine this weekend across West Tennessee but temperatures will be below normal. The next front is expected to come by either late Sunday or early Monday. Morning lows will start out around freezing in the low 30s. Highs on Saturday will make it into the low 50s is all and we could warm up to the upper 50s by the end of the day on Sunday depending on the next front. The winds this weekend will come out of the west but could have more a northerly component to them on Saturday. Temperatures will be brisk again Sunday night depending on when the next cold front could pass by on Sunday or next Monday. This could drop morning temperatures back down into the 20s for some of us again as we get going into next week.
Not only are we beginning to crawl deeper into the fall season and freezing weather will be coming soon, we are also in our second 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.
