Wednesday Night Forecast Update for November 24th:
After a warm, breezy and mild Wednesday across West Tennessee, changes are coming on Thanksgiving. Showers and a few weak storms are expected to push through in the morning and linger into the afternoon on Thursday. As the clouds and rain clear out overnight, the cold will move in for Friday. Catch the latest forecast, including the chances on another front moving through on Sunday, all coming up here.
Clouds will increase tonight and the winds will remain breezy out of the south. Overnight lows will only drop to the upper 40s due to the clouds and breezy winds. Rain showers and maybe a couple weak storms will move in overnight and will begin to move into West Tennessee around sunrise. On average 1/2 inch of rainfall can be expected with some areas seeing as low as 1/4 and some closer to 3/4 of an inch. The rain will clear out during the second half of the day on Thanksgiving.
Mostly cloudy skies and rain showers will hang around for the first half of the day. Strong storms or severe weather is not expected. As the day goes on the showers will move out and the skies will clear out Thursday night into Friday morning. Highs will reach the low to mid 50s and the winds will be breezy switching direction from the south to the northwest in the afternoon. Temperatures will fall back down into the 20s by Friday morning.
Another chilly day is in the forecast for Friday. Morning lows will start in the mid 20s and highs will only reach the mid to upper 40s. Sunny skies are also expected and the winds will be light out of the south. Playoff football games are going to be cold with temperatures into the upper or mid 30s for the games. By Saturday morning, lows will fall back down to the low 30s again.
Like the last 2 weekends, Saturday looks to be nicer then Sunday. Another front looks likely to pass through on Sunday, but rain chances currently are pretty low associated with the front. Highs will make it to the upper 50s on Saturday and mid 50s Sunday depending on the timing of the weekend’s cold front. Weekend nighttime lows will fall down into the mid 30s.
Warmer and mostly sunny weather is expected to return to West Tennessee next week. Highs will make it close to 60° on Monday, and low to mid 60s on Tuesday. Winds will come out of the south and west early in the week. More clouds will move in towards the middle of the week and rain chances will increase as the week goes on as well. Some locations are expected to reach the mid 60s next Wednesday and rain chances look quite low for the majority of the week. Winds will stay out of the south and west for the first half of next week.
