Teeth-chattering, record-breaking cold temperatures on the way
The sunshine peeked out from under the clouds just before sunset last night. Days of rain have been replaced with blue skies and cold temperature which are forecast to get even colder over the next few days. Here are the forecast low temps for the next five days:
- Sunday morning- 39 degrees
- Monday morning – 46 degrees
- Tuesday morning – 36 degrees
- Wednesday morning – 25 degrees
- Thursday morning – 30 degrees
If the temperature drops to 25 degrees on Wednesday morning that would break the record low temperature of 27 degrees set on Nov. 14, 1940, in Natchez. The next day on Nov. 15, 1940, the temperature dropped to 19 degrees in Natchez.
Take precautions and make sure your pets, plants and the elderly are protected from these harsh temperatures.
