Friday's Winter Weather Update

After a night of slipping and sliding for most central Mississippians and hours of being stuck on "the stack" interstate combination of I-20/I-55, most are ready for the weather to improve!

Another batch of freezing rain/sleet will move over the state this morning. Temperatures are already warming, so much of this will change over to just a cold rain later in the day. The delta counties could see a few more snow flurries before the day is done as the bulk of the precipitation will move across the northern one-third of the state. However, if you must drive anywhere this morning, please slow it down. Bridges and overpasses are icy, although most have been treated by road crews. Click on the WLBT First Alert Radar and you can see what the current situation is. Remember, it is interactive so you can zoom over any location and make it do just about anything by picking your options.

The weekend will be much better! We're looking for cool sunshine Saturday and Sunday. But just as I mentioned this week on WLBT, winter is far from being over. Another potent system is expected to move in Wednesday and Thursday, so we may have another icing/snow event on our hands.

(Barbie will be the guest speaker at Centreville Baptist Church's ladies luncheon Saturday. This event is sold out with a waiting list. Call the church is you would like to get on list.)
