Tuesday Night Forecast Update

Tuesday Night Forecast Update for June 7th:

The showers and storms have cleared out tonight but it will remain warm and humid. That will help set the stage for more showers and storms Wednesday morning and afternoon. Additionally a cold front will pass Wednesday evening and that could spark up a storm or two as well. We will talk more details about tomorrow’s storm threat and the latest on Friday’s cold front, plus your weekend forecast coming up here.

MONDAY STORM DAMAGE REPORT:

The National Weather Service in Memphis earlier today completed their storm damage survey from the storms across Haywood and Crockett counties yesterday. Their survey team found weak EF-0 tornado damage near the Christmasville community in Haywood County. Their report stated:

They also surveyed the damage in Crockett county from where the funnel cloud was spotted by many people and we shared the videos of the storm yesterday. They were unable to confirm any tornado type damage and have classified the event as straight line wind damage. Here is their other report.
A SURVEY TEAM EXPLORED DAMAGE IN CROCKETT COUNTY AND ONLY FOUND WIND DAMAGE FROM STRAIGHT LINE WINDS. DAMAGE WAS TO TREES IN DIFFERENT PORTIONS OF THE COUNTY.

TONIGHT:

The showers have cleared out for the rest of the night here in West Tennessee. The winds will come out of the west or be calm and skies will likely be mostly cloudy. Lows will fall back down to the upper 60s by Wednesday morning.

WEDNESDAY:

Another round of showers and storms can be expected again on Wednesday. The showers and storm chances should move out during the back half of the day and the clouds could even begin to move out late Wednesday night. Expect mostly cloudy skies though and a southwest breeze for most of the day. Another slight risk (2/5) for severe storms is out for the entire region. Wednesday highs will reach the low to mid 80s and temperatures are forecast to drop down to the upper 60s again by Thursday morning.

No description available.

THURSDAY:

A quick change in the soggy weather pattern is expected for Thursday with a mostly dry day with mostly sunny skies expected to return. Highs will reach the mid 80s but temperatures will be limited to get any warmer due to a north winds around 5-10 MPH. Thursday night lows will dip into the low 60s.

FRIDAY:

Another chance for rain showers and storms could return into the day on Friday as another cold front is expected to impact the area.  Some stronger storms will be possible into the afternoon and evening depending on the timing on the system. Highs will reach the low 80s on Friday and the winds will vary in direction as the system passes by. Friday night lows will drop down to around 60° and the showers should clear out just in time for the upcoming weekend.

THE WEEKEND:

Things appear to be quieting down for the upcoming weekend across West Tennessee. Temperatures are expected to be a few degrees below normal due to the late week cold front, but plenty of sunshine can be expected and shower and storm chances look quite low as of now. Highs might only reach the upper 70s on Saturday and low 80s on Sunday. The winds will come out of the north on Saturday and shift more out of the east on Sunday. Both mornings look to start out around 60°. Some warmer weather could be returning just in time for the start of the following work week.

FINAL THOUGHT:

We saw our first 90° day on the year on May 11th and more 90s are expected over the next few weeks. Meteorological Summer started on June 1st, but the official start of summer will be on Tuesday June 21st, and there will be more chances for severe weather though as we approach the start of summer. 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.
