Wednesday Afternoon Weather


Today’s weather headline: Cloudy & Cool (again)

Temperatures remained nearly steady overnight in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees due to the low level stratus clouds that continue to camp out over the News Channel 3 forecast area. Northerly winds will not be a brisk as yesterday, and IF we’re fortunate some of us might see a peek of sunshine later this afternoon. Highs in the upper 50s to near 60. Overnight low of 51 degrees.

Weather models are showing thenext cold front will move through the MidSouth by Monday evening and we could see some rain ahead of the front in areas just north of I-40 (that’s you, Dyersburg). This front will likely stall along the Gulf Coast and will wait for another storm system from the west come midweek. The result looks to be heavy rain 1-3 inch amounts possible.

Not to mention, Tropical Storm Zeta in the Caribbean. We are now watching to see what, if any, impact it will have on the MidSouth. It’s still early. Movement is westward, drifting towards the western tip of Cuba. Miami will receive torrential downpours.

For the most part, next week will have multiple rounds of rain with slightly cooler temperatures. If there’s a bright spot on this outlook…it’s the idea of sunshine next weekend!

Stay safe. /wn
