WBBJ 7 Forecast Update:
Some light showers came down this afternoon across West Tennessee but cleared out late in the evening and the clouds will follow overnight. Plenty of sunshine and mild weather will look to return for the middle of the week. There could be another shot for a few showers this weekend though. We will have the rest of your Mid South forecast plus more on the active tropical situation in the Atlantic Ocean coming up right here.
Clouds stuck around for most of the day on Tuesday but will look to clear out some late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Rain showers will taper off as they move east into the evening hours as well. Highs on Tuesday reached the mid to upper 70s as a cold front passed by early in the day. The winds will come out of the northeast and be light or calm tonight. Tuesday night lows will dip down to around 60°.
Some clouds will stick around early Wednesday but skies will look to clear out as the day goes on. The winds will continue to come out of the northeast keeping the temperatures below normal for us. Highs will reach the upper 70s or low 80s and rain showers are not in the forecast. Overall Wednesday looks like a pretty nice day and Wednesday night lows will fall all the way down to the mid 50s. Some low 50s will be possible if the skies clear.
The nice weather will look to continue on Thursday. Highs will stay in the upper 70s or low 80s and morning lows will again dip to the mid 50s Thursday night. We should see plenty of sunshine on Thursday with mostly sunny conditions lingering over West Tennessee. The winds will stay out of the northeast as an area of high pressure will develop in the middle of the week north of the region and stay prevalent into the start of the weekend. Rain chances appear to be very low on Thursday.
Friday looks to be another fantastic day with another round of perfect weather for Friday night football across the region. It will not be too hot, or cold and rain showers will stay away it appears as of now. We should see sunny skies with highs reaching up to around 80°. Friday night lows will fall to the upper 50s or low 60s and temperatures will be around 65-70° for the football games. The winds will continue to come out of the north but should be light.
The weekend forecast is where things start to get a bit tricky. There appears to be another cold front on the way but it doesn’t look like a real impressive system. Clouds look to build back some on Saturday and some shower activity looks possible but there is not a lot of confidence in that front bringing much precipitation as of now or the timing of the system. The winds will come out of the north on Saturday and shift back to the northwest behind the next front on Sunday. We should see more clouds than sun on Saturday than Sunday depending on the timing of the front. Highs will make it up to the low 80s on Saturday and upper 70s to near 80° on Sunday depending on the timing of the weekend system. Weekend mornings will get started around 60°.
