Once again we are stair stepping our way into the fall season. We are looking at another cold front (that is currently in the Northern Rockies) that is headed our way. This front will bring in some of the coolest temperatures of the season so far right into the area by the middle of next week.
Prior to the cooler air moving into the area, we will see a little bit of low pressure move through the area. This will give us some scattered showers and storms in our forecast for our Sunday. More numerous areas of showers and storms move into the area on Sunday night and into Monday. This activity will linger into Monday night and into Tuesday morning. We will see the aforementioned cold front move through the area on Tuesday and this will clear the area of all showers and storms on Tuesday afternoon. FYI, a few of the storms on Monday and into Monday night could be on the strong side, however the best chance for severe weather will be just to our North and East.
Some of the coolest temperatures will move into the area next week. Most high temperatures will be in the 70s for our Tuesday and Wednesday. Most of our morning lows on Wednesday and Thursday will be in the middle 40s to lower 50s. I have had several people ask me if this is record breaking weather and I told them that it is not. I had one gentleman tell me of the frosts of September 1981 and sure enough we did see some frosty conditions. Tupelo's records are 39 for Wednesday morning and for Thursday morning the record is 41 and sure enough from the year 1981. FYI the coldest September morning since record keeping started was 35 on September 24th 1983. Later that same year we had some of the coldest temperatures ever around Christmas time 1983. Some of you may remember that unseasonably cold blast of air that moved into the area.
