Too cold! - - Jackson, MS

Too cold!

So, this is what it feels like to live in Alaska. Maybe a bit of an exaggeration but you get the picture.  We're at 21 degrees right now, and it will get even lower before the sun comes up. Meteorologist Michael Haynes will tell us about the current hard freeze warning and how we can protect ourselves and our homes from it in his First Alert Forecast.

With cold weather on the brain we look at how organizations like Stewpot Ministries and Salvation Army are helping those in need by providing warm meals and a warm place to stay.

Plus, this deep freeze has much of the country experiencing cold that they haven't seen in years.  We'll take you to the Midwest and northeast where wind chills in some areas could hit 60 below today.

And, aside from the frigid temps there's been another episode of a security guard shooting a patron.  This time it was a Jackson strip club Sunday morning. We'll have details on that at the top of the hour.

Those stories and much more are heading your way.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more Mississippi News Now you can find it on Fox 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great Monday and stay warm.
