Skycast Tonight

TONIGHT:

Partly cloudy skies and calm winds will give way to patchy fog developing overnight and into early morning. Lows in the upper 40’s.

THURSDAY:

We will see a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day on Thursday in West Tennessee with more sun then clouds expected. Highs will make it back into the 70s for most of our viewing area and the winds will shift back out of the south and be light. Thursday appears to be the nicest weather day on the work week. Thursday night lows will only drop into the mid 50s. Shower chances could return late Thursday night.

FRIDAY:

Cloudy skies and rain showers look to dominate the weather across the region on Friday. Another low pressure and cold front will track through the area. Some storms could mix in with the rain showers but the severe weather threat looks low as of now. Highs on Friday will drop back into the mid 60s and Friday night lows will fall down near 40° as the cold front passes by. The winds will be a bit breezy out of the southwest and change direction late in the day behind the front.

THE WEEKEND:

The weekend looks like it is going to be a pretty nice one for all of West Tennessee. Highs will reach the mid 60s on Saturday and get close to 70° on Sunday. We could see some clouds sticking around for the first half of the day on Saturday before clearing out before the sun goes down. Plenty of sunshine is expected on Sunday. The winds will stay out of the north for most of the day on Saturday before changing back to the south on Sunday helping us warm up some. Nice weather looks to continue into the beginning of the following work week.

FINAL THOUGHT:

We are getting towards the end of winter here in West Tennessee, but we could see more rounds of winter precipitation or another freeze in the next few weeks. There will be more chances for severe weather though as we get closer to Spring. So you need to stay weather aware to changing weather patterns and monitor the forecasts closely.
