Colder Today With Sunshine Remaining

Wednesday January 26th Update

Wednesday Forecast Update for January 26th:

We dropped into upper teens this morning with single digit winchills and today looks to be about 4 degrees colder in the afternoon which will keep us feeling like the upper 20’s even in the warmest part of the day. A brief wintry mix of a few flurries could move in Thursday & Friday but I wouldn’t expect much. We will talk about a nice warm up returning towards the back half of the forecast coming up today on WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News at Mid-day and Noon.

Another cold day ahead by about 4 degrees in the afternoon. Winds will be dying down considerably in the late afternoon and evening. Highs will top out in the middle 30’s but winds from the northeast around 10 mph will keep us feeling like the upper 20’s through the afternoon. Clouds will roll in tonight and overnight lows will drop to around 22 by morning and a few snow flurries can’t be ruled out early morning but the better chance of seeing a flake or two comes for Friday morning with our next cold front.


A brief warm up back into the mid 40s is coming for Thursday before the next front moves through the area. The winds will change back to the south on Thursday but depending on the timing of the next system, the winds again will come out of the north late Thursday or into the day on Friday. Thursday night lows will fall down to around 30° and highs on Friday look to only reach the mid 30s. There is a chance for some brief periods of a wintry mix or some flurries coming as the front passes but as of now, any thing significant is not expected across our viewing area.  We will be watching the forecast closely in the Storm Team Weather Center as the week progresses.

Plenty of sunshine is expected to return for the weekend but it will start out cold again like last weekend. Saturday morning lows will be in the teens and highs on Saturday will only reach the upper 30s. A change in the winds from the north to the south is expected again on Sunday and that should warm us back up into the 50s by Sunday afternoon. The weekend looks like it is going to be dry and very similar weather to what we saw this last weekend across West Tennessee.  The warming trend looks to continue into the first half of next week as well. Temperatures could top 60° towards the middle of next week.


We are in the heart of winter 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 February. 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.
