Noon Forecast 

Extended Forecast

Monday: Scattered showers & thundershowers. Very windy. Wind gusts to 25 mph.

Tuesday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms. An isolated severe storm is possible.

Wednesday: Chance showers and windy. Thunderstorms develop later in the day. Some of the storms could be severe overnight.

Thursday: Scattered showers likely in the morning. Possible clearing by afternoon.

Friday: Partly cloudy.

Saturday: A chance for showers.

Radar Simulation

This radar runs from 9:00 a.m. today through 4:00 a.m. Tuesday. Notice one line of storms that weakens as it comes to us this evening out of West TN. That line should be rather weak when it arrives but I’ll keep an eye on that. More storms are expected overnight and some of those could be severe. I’ll update throughout the next few days with special updates, as needed.

MM’s Severe Wx Concerns 

The main threat comes Wednesday night, though a strong to severe storm may also be possible with any activity that develops Monday or Tuesday night. I’ll keep you posted during this very active weather period.

This is an uncertain severe weather situation and will likely not be a widespread event. Nevertheless, I’ll keep a close eye on things and update as needed.

This is, by far, the greatest threat of the week. I had hoped that I could lower my concern for this time period with this morning’s update. Such is not the case.



Drought Data

The data cutoff for Drought Monitor maps is each Tuesday at 7 a.m. The maps, which are based on analysis of the data, are then released to the public each Thursday at 7:30 a.m. For much more drought info, please follow my link to
