Cold Weather NOT Going Anywhere this Week in West Tennessee!
Tuesday Night Forecast Update
Tuesday Night Forecast Update for November 15th:
Highs look to stay in the 40s and lows will drop down in the 20s for most of the forecast. Plenty of sunshine will return on Wednesday but brisk weather will not be going anywhere until next week. The winds will stay out of the north or west until early next week as well.
After seeing well above normal temperatures in West Tennessee for the first 11 days of November, the last 4, have been the exact opposite. We still have another 5 days of below normal temperatures before some warmer weather will try to move back in just in time for Thanksgiving.
We will let you know if any of us might be dropping into the teens and let you know when some showers could return to the region coming up here.
Plenty of clouds will stick around for most of the night keeping high temperatures out of the 20s for many of us. The winds will be a tad breezy at times making it feel quite cold still. Tuesday night lows will drop down to around 30°r most of us.
The skies should clear out on Wednesday making for a mostly sunny afternoon. Highs will again only reach the mid to maybe upper 40s due to a brisk northwest wind keeping a cold pool of air around all day. Temperatures will be chilly again Wednesday night and fall down into the mid 20s due to the clear skies and mostly calm winds.
Don’t expect any sort of warm up as we head towards the back half of the work week as another cold front will clip us on Thursday. The front will be a dry front and might not even bring much for clouds with it. Expect sunny skies on Thursday with highs struggling to reach the mid 40s for many of us. The winds will continue to come out of the northwest or west into the afternoon behind the next system. Thursday night lows will again be cold and fall down to the mid 20s.
The coldest day on the week looks like it is going to be Friday. Highs will only climb up to around 40° and some locations might stay in the 30s for high temperatures. Friday night lows could fall down to the teens for the first time this fall with best case scenario looking like low 20s as we start the weekend. The winds will stay out of the west and sunny skies are expected again for most of the day.
The weekend is going to start out very cold and not warm up much as the weekend progresses. Highs will reach the mid 40s on Saturday and upper 40s look to be on the way for Sunday. Saturday night will again remain cold with most of us falling back into the mid 20s again. Sunday night might be a little warmer with temperatures dropping down to around 30° for Monday morning. Mostly sunny skies are again expected for the majority of weekend with a few more clouds being possible on Saturday than Sunday. The winds will stay out of the west or north all weekend cutting off the warmer weather from returning. We could be looking at a warm up returning early next week, so keep your fingers crossed for that!
All of West Tennessee saw our first frost and freeze earlier in October and the current cold spell will last through the weekend. We have our first shot at some teens coming in Friday night across the Mid South as well. On top of the colder weather, we sometimes see storms develop in November and we could see more storms again later in the month. 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.
