Cold Front Coming Late Thursday, Nice Through the Weekend
WBBJ 7 Forecast Update
WBBJ 7 Forecast Update:
After picking up some brief heavy showers and a couple storms on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday look to be mostly dry days. A cold front will drift in from the north late Thursday and that will allow temperatures on Friday to drop down below normal again. The weather this weekend looks great! We are not expecting much for rain through the upcoming 3 day weekend and the humidity should remain low through the weekend as well. We will have the latest forecast details coming up here.
Although we cannot rule out a stray shower tonight, chances for rain sit at 10% at best most of the week. The winds will stay out of the east and likely be calm as the night goes on. Highs were near normal today around 80° and lows will fall into the upper 50s again tonight.
THURSDAY & FRIDAY:
We are expecting a cold front to clip us from the north as we head into the back half of the work week that will cool things down some. It will be a dry front so we are not expecting showers and storms in West Tennessee as it drifts through our area. As the front passes we are expecting temperatures to drop a bit. Highs as we finish the work week will fall back down to the mid to upper 70s and morning lows will fall to the low to mid 50s. The winds will stay out of the northeast behind that front and continue until we head into the upcoming weekend.
MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND:
As the weekend wraps up the winds will begin to come back out of the southeast. Most of the weekend though the winds will stay out of the northeast keeping the humidity down all weekend long. This will start as warming trend by the end of the upcoming Memorial day weekend. Highs will reach the upper 70s for both Saturday and Sunday. We could be back into the 80s by Monday. We are expecting a better chance for a few weak storms or rain showers this weekend with Saturday being the most likely day to be impacted as of now but chances are only at 20%. We are still expecting partly cloudy or mostly sunny weather to last into next week. Although rain will be scarce for Sunday and Monday, the humidity will be also be increasing as the weekend progresses.
We are expecting temperatures to warm back into the mid to upper 80s into the middle of next week. This will occur because the winds will come out of the southeast which will also increase the humidity. This will lead to a few pop up showers and storms but there appears to be no significant storms or soaking rain heading our way next week. Morning lows will drop back to the mid 60s for the majority of the week as well.
May started out below normal, but warm and humid weather pushed in for the middle of of May. That led to several rounds of storms that should stay out of the forecast until at the earliest the upcoming weekend. Highs are expected to stay near normal until the upcoming weekend as well. 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.
