Winter storm hitting Deep South not expected to impact Northeast Mississippi

08 December 2017

Slick spots could develop on the roads, but temperatures are expected to remain above freezing in most areas until Friday evening.

The National Weather Service in New Orleans has issued a winter weather advisory beginning at 9 p.m. Thursday until 12 p.m. Friday for all counties in South Mississippi.

Some wind accompanied by rain or more accumulating snow is possible Monday night into Tuesday, the weather service said. The higher snow rates will most likely come sometime between 8 a.m. and noon; the precipitation tapers off tomorrow afternoon. Temperatures should go above freezing, into the mid to upper 30s, by late morning and through the afternoon, easing the ice issue on roads. Still, some minor accumulations will be possible for some.

Colder air will continue to spill into Georgia from the north Friday thanks to another cold front. Some on the northern edge could see nothing at all, and others on the southern part could see all rain.

This is the biggest question mark with Friday morning forecast.

There may be a few hours before sunrise Friday where the cold air and moisture overlap to produce light snow showers, especially south of I-10.

Southeast Louisiana hasn't experienced snow accumulation since February 10, 2012, when about 1 inch fell in the Baton Rouge area.

Butts County is not included in the advisory, but residents who may be traveling north on Friday should use caution. Some of our models are hinting at a final push of moisture that swings through overnight Friday into Saturday morning.

Plants and pets will also need to be protect for these freezing temperatures.

And yes, it is indeed a nasty piece of work, with one of its signature traits being that it actually ate other dinosaurs. A hilarious new promo featuring Pratt, Dallas Howard and Youtube personality Zach King may actually explain it though.
