The rain showers should move out early this evening and the clouds will slowly clear out as the night goes on. Winds will be a bit breezy at times as the next storm system moves through. The winds will change direction from the southwest to the northwest. Lows will fall all the way down below freezing and some locations could fall to the upper 20s. This will be due to the dry air mass behind the front and the clear skies expected by Saturday morning.


We should see plenty of sunshine to start this weekend across West Tennessee but temperatures will be below normal. The next front is expected to come by on Sunday, but only a few showers if any are expected in West Tennessee if any at all. Morning lows will start out around freezing in the low 30s or upper 20s. Highs on Saturday will make it up to the upper 40s is all and we could warm up to the upper 50s by the end of the day on Sunday depending on the timing of the next front.

The winds this weekend will come out of the northwest but could have more a westerly component to them on Sunday and be quite breezy as well.  Temperatures will be brisk again Sunday night depending on when the next cold front could pass by on Sunday or next Monday morning. This could drop morning temperatures back down below freezing for some of us again as we get going into next week.


We will start out our Monday down near freezing again behind Sunday’s cold front. Highs on Monday will only reach the mid 50s and the winds will be light out of the northwest. Mostly sunny skies are expected for Monday and Tuesday. The winds changing direction on Tuesday and Wednesday to the south. This will start to warm things back up a bit and highs are forecast to reach the 60s to near 70° by Wednesday. The increase in humidity from the southerly winds will keep our overnight temperatures up in the middle of the week but will bring more clouds on Tuesday and Wednesday as well. The next front looks to impact West Tennessee on Thursday and could bring some thunderstorms with it depending on the timing of the front.
