The National Weather office in Memphis has issued a freeze warning for all of Northeast Mississippi’s counties, beginning at 1 a.m. Wednesday and extending until 9 a.m.

The temperature is expected to fall to 31 degrees or lower, posing a threat to young vegetation.

The NWS archives show that the latest freeze in Tupelo was recorded on May 4, 1976.

Unseasonably cold temperatures could drop temperatures in some normally colder areas into the mid-20s, and frost is expected.
