JULIA'S FORECAST: Chilly with limited flakes and raindrops

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

There's a lot of buzz about winter weather in today's forecast! However, the threat continues to look limited. Through the morning we've watched flurries and light snow over the Plains states, with the upper-level system progressing eastward toward our area.

 By midday, some of these flakes will materialize closer to our home, however the dry air and the temps hovering just above the freezing mark should prevent much from accumulating. We're looking at a dusting to an inch on grassy surfaces, generally south of I-20. Keep in mind, roads may be slick, especially on bridges and overpasses.  As for the timeframe, the greatest threat for flakes will be from 1-4pm.

Otherwise, it will be cold today! Highs won't leave the 30s. Skies quickly clear during the overnight, allowing temperatures to fall down into the 20s. We're looking slightly better on Friday with highs back in the mid and high 40s, although that's still a good ten degrees below average.
