Arctic Invasion is Coming!
SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT
WEST TENNESSEE WEATHER ONLINE JACKSON TN
804 AM CST SAT JAN 18 2020
...An Arctic Invasion to Spread over the Region Sunday through Tuesday...
A cold front will be arriving today that will allow cold air to pour into West TN. Low temperatures will be in the mid-20s Sunday morning. Wind chill readings will be in the teens. The high Sunday will likely not get out of the 30s. Sunday night lows are expected to be in the upper teens which we haven't seen since mid-November. Another reinforcing shot of arctic air will keep many areas from reaching freezing on Martin Luther King Jr Day. Wind chills that morning could be in the single digits. Tuesday will be the last day for this abrupt change in temperatures. Lows Tuesday morning will be around 20 with highs reaching the upper 30s. By mid-week we should see highs in the 40s...near average for January in most areas.
Residents need to make plans now for the incoming cold. Exposed water pipes could freeze with these cold temperatures. Make plans for outdoor pets to have plenty of bedding and out of direct wind providing the low wind chill values.
Additional statements will be issued as needed.
