It was a hot September in the Mid-South with 20 days at or above 90 degrees. September 2016 ended up being in the top 5 hottest in Memphis. There were 4 days with high temperatures of 98 degrees and three days with record high temperatures.

Overnight lows were in the 70s most of the month, but a cold front helped drop overnight lows into the 50s at the end of the month. 

This September was also one of the driest months on record with only 0.67 inches of rainfall. This was about two and half inches below average for the month. We only had one day with a rainfall total above 0.5 inches. 

OCTOBER OUTLOOK: Temperatures are expected to stay above average this October. Also, it doesn't look like we will make up for our lack of rain this month. Precipitation will likely remain below average for the next few weeks.
