Saturday morning update
Saturday forecast update for May 7:
A cool, cloudy start this morning, a slight chance for dustiness with mostly cloudy skies through late afternoon.
Saturday Strawberry Party Day Planner:
Clouds may stay a bit longer into the weekend than expected. The low pressure system has not moved much in the past 24 hours and this will allow northerly and easterly winds to last through the weekend. This will keep temperatures below normal on Saturday and we may not hit the 80s on Mother’s Day. We still expect several occasions around 90 seconds but next week. Check out the latest forecast information below.
After a rather cloudy start to the weekend, mostly sunny skies will return on Saturday evening and plenty of sunshine is on the way for Sunday. Saturday’s highs will be a little cool and remain below normal in the low to mid 70s. Warming. Sunday afternoon highs will move back into the upper 70s and some low 80s will be possible for some of us.
The weather looks to be very similar next weekend to the previous one we had here in West Tennessee. Early next week we might be picking up our first 90s of the year for some of us across the Mid South. Chances of rain are very unlikely this weekend.
Next week will be the hottest and wettest week we have had since last September. The last time we hit 90° in Jackson was September 13, 2021 and that was our only 90° last September. We climbed above 90° several times last August. I mention it because we will have several chances to exceed the 90° mark next week. Monday’s highs will likely remain in the upper 80s; but from Tuesday until Saturday we have a 90°+ shot every day. Most of next week promises to be mostly sunny, hot, humid, and rainless. We might see another system arrive late next weekend, but prepare for the heat!
Spring has officially begun here in West Tennessee, and there will be more chance of severe weather as we move deeper into spring. So you need to stay on top of changing weather conditions and keep a close eye on the forecast. We’ve got you covered in the WBBJ 7 Storm Team Weather Center, as always.
