Autumn begins at 4:04am Friday – Happy Fall!


It’s time to put the summer of 2011 officially behind us!  The June-July-August period ended up as the 3rd warmest “meteorological summer” in recorded Memphis history, behind 1980 and 2010.  So far, September has brought a nice turn of events with an average temperature through the 21st some 2.3 degrees below normal, even though it has been dry (with the exception of the heavy rain earlier in the week).

The autumnal equinox occurs tomorrow morning (Friday, September 22nd) at 4:04am CDT, thus marking the beginning of what we all hope is a pleasant (and LONG) fall!  In the wake of a cold front tonight, Friday will feel much like fall with highs in the mid 70s and dry weather. Saturday morning’s lows will be in the 50s all across the region.  For a complete look at the MWN Forecast for the first week of fall, click here.
