Another Bitter Cold Morning, Warmer Into Sunday Afternoon

Saturday Update

Saturday Forecast Update for January 22nd:

After dipping into the low teens this morning across West Tennessee, we have one more very cold day on the way. A change in the wind direction from the south will start to warm us back up this weekend. The warm up will be short lived as the next system will impact the region Monday night into Tuesday. It appears most of the showers will be rain, but a chance for a wintry mix or some light snow showers cannot be ruled out as of now.

Bitter cold this morning as frost is thick in many areas so bundle up heading out. Skies will remain mostly sunny with highs in the upper 30’s.

Jackson had already dropped down to 19° at 9:30 PM yesterday and even colder weather so far this morning. Most of West Tennessee will fall down to around 12° this morning, but the winds will be calm so the wind chill will not be a factor.


Highs will try to warm up some over the weekend but are still expected to stay below normal. We should only reach the upper 30s on Saturday and mid 40s on Sunday. The winds will change from the north to the west as the weekend progresses. Saturday morning lows will drop into the teens and Sunday morning lows will fall into the mid 20s. Warmer weather will try to move back in for next week and showers are not in the forecast this weekend or on Monday next week. We could see a few more clouds on Sunday as well, but plenty of sunshine is still expected this weekend.

A brief warm up is expected on Monday with highs making it back into the 50s. The next cold front is expected to return sometime late Monday or early Tuesday. The system will bring some rain showers to West Tennessee and although it doesn’t appear to be a big system, some flurries or a brief wintry mix cannot be ruled out. Highs behind the front in the middle of the week will only reach the 30s again and lows are expected to drop down near 20° again for a couple mornings. The winds will shift from the southwest on Monday back to the north on Tuesday and Wednesday.


Winter has officially started here in West Tennessee and we currently could see more rounds of winter precipitation in the coming weeks.  There could be more chances for severe weather though too as we get going into 2022. 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.
