Saturday Morning Weather, 8/15/2020


Change is good.

Winds will shift and we’ll feel a clutch northern breeze today! Now, we will still be warm, around normal for August, but we’ll receive a reinforcing shot of cooler and drier air on Sunday as a weak cold front helps to knock high temperatures down into the 80s for the next several days.

As the front passes, there is an isolated chance of a stray shower or even a thunderstorm, but most of the News Channel 3 viewing area should remain dry, with rain most likely in north Mississippi and west Tennessee closer to the Tennessee River. Highs today in the low 90s, with heat index values near 99 degrees. Overnight lows seasonal: 72.

The cold front will slow down as it approaches the MidSouth, but we still expect it to move through on Sunday and bring some cooler and drier air. The forecast for the next several days looks pretty straight forward after this weekend. Mostly dry conditions with at least another slight chance of rain Thursday and Friday. Enjoy, stay safe and wear a mask.
