Check out the frigid lows from this morning!
After starting out in the teens, we're struggling to warm above freezing this afternoon. Fortunately, the wind is decreasing, but even with lighter speeds wind chill values are still running in the teens and 20s.
Temperatures drop quickly again this evening, but not as cold as last night; morning lows reach the low 20s rather than teens. Clouds begin increasing after midnight in advance of weak disturbance that will bring the potential for some light freezing rain, sleet, and a few snow flakes to South Mississippi (mainly south of Highway 84) early tomorrow morning. A few icy spots could develop, especially on bridges and overpasses, but this is not a significant winter storm threat. With that said, before leaving home in the morning, please check in with us during the A.M. newscasts to receive the latest weather information and road conditions.
We remain cold through Saturday night when another disturbance approaches from the west; some light freezing precipitation will be possible, but once again no big deal. A brief warming trend begins Sunday and will continue into the first part of next week. And as the pattern becomes more active, the coverage of showers and light rain will also increase.
Longer term, another shot of cold air arrives toward the middle of next week, but nothing like the frigid temperatures we're dealing with right now.
