An evening storm is possible, especially across West and Middle Tennessee. Otherwise, skies should be partly cloudy. Overnight lows will be near 70 degrees for most.

Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather 

Rain chances drop on Saturday but there will continue to be the threat of some rain and thunder. Rain chances are once again highest in the west and lowest in the east. The Memphis area can expect a 50% chance for showers and storms, while those chances drop to around 30% for East Tennessee. Afternoon highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.


This is certainly something we don’t see everyday and will make an excellent story in my WeatherLetter next week! Hurricane Henri is now expected to impact New England rather adversely. High winds, heavy rains, and tons of beach erosion are all likely now by Sunday. The wind field will be very large, so the impacts will be felt from the center.
