An upper level disturbance and cold front will enter Mississippi from the west this evening and increase our chances for light snow to fall. Temperatures will be above freezing overnight, so most of the snow will melt before it reaches the surface. However, some snow could mix with rain at times.
Areas that could see the rain/snow mix are areas south of Highway 82 and north of Highway 84, or central Mississippi.
This will not be a significant snowfall event like what we experienced on February 12. Accumulation amounts will be less than one inch and will gather mostly on elevated or metal surfaces and grassy areas. Therefore, no travel delays are expected.
