TONIGHT:

Another low pressure and cold front will track through the area. We could see some drizzle or light rain showers as the front passes, but the strong storms or severe weather will not show up tonight.  Friday night lows will fall down into the low 40s as the cold front passes by. The winds will be a breezy out of the west all night long.

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 to upper 50s on Saturday and get close to 70° on Sunday. We could see some clouds sticking around for most of the day on Saturday before clearing out before the sun goes down. If we get the sun to peak though in the afternoon we could see highs reach 60°. Plenty of sunshine is expected on Sunday thought for the first day on Spring. 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. Saturday night could be a bit chilly with many of us falling into the upper 30s but we should stay well above freezing.

NEXT WEEK:

Monday looks to start out just as nice as Sunday with highs near 70° and mostly sunny skies. Clouds and shower chances return though during the middle of the week. Some storm activity looks likely on Tuesday but the location of the most significant storm threat is still up for discussion as the system gets a little closer. A slight cool down will come on Wednesday and Thursday behind Tuesday’s cold front. We could end up with a couple inches of rain from Monday night through Wednesday morning.

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.
