The humidity will increase as the work week goes on making it feel evening hotter. Expect mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies on Wednesday and the winds will come out of the south.

A very hot weekend looks to be in store for West Tennessee and all of the Mid South. Highs look to reach the upper 90s and the humidity will be a factor as well. It seems more likely than hot some heat alerts are going to be issued this weekend. Low temperatures may only fall down to the upper 70s. Skies will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy. The winds will start of the southwest but could transition to the west as the weekend goes on. There could be a front that tries to move in late in the weekend or early next week but confidence is low as of now for the timing of that front and if it will even make it into West Tennessee.


Highs are expected to warm up again for the upcoming week. The rain and storm chances will continue early this week before clearing out completely as we head into the back half of the week and weekend. Much quieter but hotter weather will stick around for the weekend. You need to stay alert to changing weather patterns and monitor the forecasts closely for heat and the potential for some isolated storms this week.
