It is finally the weekend! Happy Saturday!
We are on our way to 60° today! You can thank those southerly winds later.
With abundant sunshine, it’s the perfect day to run some errands or take grandma out for lunch.
Lets break it down:
High: 60° (afternoon)
Sunday Looks Soggy
Unfortunately, clouds will start to increase overnight into the morning hours. Keep the umbrella handy because the rain will roll in from the west around noon.
The GFS model shows rain will impact most of Tennessee by 6pm due to a cold front who will show our temperatures who’s boss.
Winds will then shift from the south to the north after the cold front. Those northerly winds at 5-10 mph will keep us cool.
Temperature break down:
Enjoy the 60°s while they last! Expect a 20° difference on Monday. The high will only get up to 46° (brr..). Rain chances will linger overnight Sunday into the morning on Monday. Watch out for ponding on the roads when heading out for work or school. For the evening, there will be partly cloudy skies and scattered showers with a low of 29°.
Here is your extended forecast from the National Weather Service:
– Intern Applicant Meagan Massey
My name is Meagan Massey and I am currently a junior at Mississippi State University who is majoring in Professional Meteorology with a broadcast emphasis. I am from Dallas, Texas and weather has been my passion since I was 5 years old, so yes I am a HUGE weather nerd. I am currently the Vice President of the East Mississippi Chapter of the NWA/AMS (it is a mouth full) and I am on the committee for MSU Relay for Life too. The coolest thing I do is launch weather balloons for the National Weather Service in Memphis, TN with three other graduate students every spring. I have been launching since I was an embarrassing freshman and the best part is our name “Temperature Reconnaissance Aboard Multiple Platform’s ” (look at the abbreviation). I also recently had an internship with Chief Meteorologist Ryan Vaughan in Jonesboro, AR. Long story short, I love to take on any/every weather related opportunity I get.
