NEW YEAR’S WEEKEND:

Cloudy skies and rain showers will stick around for most of the day on Saturday. The rain will likely continue into New Year’s Eve evening but will try to move out sometime late in the evening or at night.  Highs on Saturday (New Year’s Eve) will make it up to around 60° and New Year’s Eve night temperatures will hang around into the 50s. The rain is expected to clear out by New Year’s afternoon and temperatures will be very warm on New Year’s Day in the mid 60s.

Expect partly cloudy skies on Sunday. The winds will come out of the south or southwest all weekend long and that is why temperatures are expected to stay above normal. Even warmer weather is on the way for next week and we could be up near 70° next Monday, but that could come with a price as a severe weather setup looks to be returning to the Mid South.

NEXT WEEK:

The greatest threat for severe weather in several weeks will return to the Mid South on Monday. Severe storms will be likely and the threat for tornadoes will exist as well. As of now, the storms will move through the Mid South in the evening and approach West Tennessee Monday night into early Tuesday morning. Highs on Monday will reach the upper 60s to near 70°. Tuesday highs will be early in the day in the mid 60s before dipping into the upper 40s by Wednesday morning. The rain should clear out by Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday looks to be cooler and dry with a high in the mid to upper 50s. The winds will stay out of the south early in the week before transitioning back to the west on Wednesday. Even cooler weather is on the way for Thursday and next Friday.

FINAL THOUGHT:

After the coldest Christmas in decades here in West Tennessee, much warmer weather is on the way as we finish 2022 and as we start off the New Year. This warm up will lead to more rain chances and the potential for some stronger storms as we kick off 2023. The next severe weather threat looks to be here early next week. 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.
