Chilly Forecast for High School Football Games Tomorrow

Weather Update – 11:00 p.m. – Thursday, September 17th

Our weather continues to look mostly dry for the night ahead and possibly for the next week! The humidity is dropping fast across the Mid-South and temperatures will fall with it. Under partly cloudy skies, temperatures will drop to the lower 60s by sunrise Friday morning.


It’ll feel like October tomorrow! Temperatures will peak in just the middle 70s in the afternoon under partly cloudy to gradually clearing skies. Winds will be at 10 to 15 miles per hour out of the north-northeast. Temperatures will be in the 60s for football games Friday night so bring a sweater and get ready for a chilly weekend! You’re going to need pants and long-sleeves. There’s a chance that temperatures could drop into the 40s – but 40s this weekend would not be unusual. The average date for first temperature < 50°F in late Summer and early Fall is September 18th in Jackson. It would be the earliest in 3 years though.
