Chance of snow, sleet and freezing rain in Miss.

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - It's painfully cold in Mississippi and getting worse.

Forecasters say residents should brace for subfreezing temperatures and the potential for nasty driving conditions in the coming days.

National Weather Service meteorologist Ariel Cohen said there's a 90% chance of snow in north Mississippi on Wednesday night.

Watch out for possible snow, sleet and freezing rain in central Mississippi late Wednesday and into Thursday and showers in the south with a smaller chance of snow.

Cohen said temperatures could dip into the single digits Friday night in the north and teens elsewhere.

Mississippi Department of Transpiration officials say there could be hazardous driving conditions, especially on bridges.
