Forecast: Blustery & Cold Again Tuesday
TONIGHT: A few light rain or snow showers are possible during the night, especially near the Tennessee River. No sizable accumulations or travel impacts are expected at this time. We’ll fall into the mid to low 30s by late in the evening and eventually the upper 20s by sunrise. Those gusty NW winds will relax a bit but we’re still looking at wind chill values in the low 20s and teens for the morning commute.
TUESDAY: Blustery and cold weather will continue so keep those warm winter coats on standby. Areas SW of the Golden Triangle have the best shot at getting into the low 40s while locations northeast of Tupelo may stay in the mid 30s. Some passing flurries are possible but don’t expect much. Winds will continue in the 10 to 25 mph range and that means a definite bite to the air.
WEDNESDAY: We’ll start off the day in the low 20s and only rebound back into the low 40s. Lighter wind and more sunshine will make it feel much more bearable.
THURSDAY & FRIDAY: Seasonable temperatures in the low to mid 50s appear on track under partly cloudy skies. This is a little bit below average for this time of year but overall not too bad.
WEEKEND & BEYOND: Another surge or cold, Canadian air looks to return to the Deep South. Highs will tumble back into the 40s (maybe some 30s too) but at least the sky is going to feature a mix of sun and clouds both Saturday and Sunday. The next real item of interest is a disturbance early next week. Right now we’re advertising rain and 40s but there is a chance it could stay cold enough to support some snow. Information is clear as mud right as of right now but we’ll sift things out as the week goes on.
