Weather Update – 11:00 p.m. – Friday, February 15th
A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect in northwest Tennessee tonight until 3 a.m. including for Benton, Carroll, Crockett, Dyer, Gibson, Henry, Lake, Lauderdale, Obion, and Weakley counties. Freezing rain is causing some icy conditions in that area and tree branches and power lines will see a light glaze of ice tonight and tomorrow morning. With winds gusting up to 30 miles per hour there, we may see some isolated power outages there too. Temperatures will drop to the lower 30s with rain leaving before sunrise tomorrow.
Tomorrow will be another cold day with high temperatures in just the middle to upper 40s. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy giving way to a few breaks of sunshine with winds from the northeast at 5 to 10 miles per hour. It’ll be a dry day on Saturday, but there may still be some icy spots in northwest Tennessee in the morning from the freezing rain we will have there tonight. Another round of wet weather will move in Saturday night but it’ll just be in the form of scattered rain showers with overnight low temperatures in the lower 40s.
Rain will likely cause more problems in West Tennessee next week, especially between Tuesday and Thursday. We’ll be monitoring the potential for flooding carefully. Stay with WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News for the rest of the weekend forecast, and keep up with Storm Team Weather Online too for more updates.
