Today’s Tornado Probability Risk Map (SPC)
Dec 4, 2013
Due to the expectation of some windy weather overnight fog should not be a problem by Thursday Morning. Clouds will be on the increase overnight and so will the showers. The cold front will be impacting areas of Northwest Mississippi first and ever so slowly edge its way south over the coming days. Expect increasing rain chances for much of your Thursday especially in North and Central Mississippi. Temperatures will drastically start to drop Thursday Night as the front edges in. Again, our main focus during the next few days will be the potential for ice accumulations in the Delta region as well as much of North Mississippi. Freezing rain will become a possibility Friday into Friday Night for those areas of concern( Delta/North MS). During the day Saturday temperatures will warm before those same areas will have another shot at seeing more wintry precipitation in the form of sleet/freezing rain Saturday Night and Sunday.

(Freezing Rain Probability Graphic Through Friday Night-via: WPC)
With a strong cold front expected to move through much of Mississippi, cooler temperatures and plenty of rain is expected but some areas of Mississippi could see wintry precipitation. The front will approach much of North Mississippi Wednesday Night into Thursday. Temperatures will start to drop during the day Thursday with lows in the 30′s Friday Morning. Friday temperatures will remain in the 30′s throughout the day. With plenty of precipitation expected Friday and overnight Friday into Saturday, a wintry mix is definitely possible. Sleet and freezing rain will definitely be a concern as temperatures in the North Mississippi will drop to at or below freezing Friday Night into Saturday morning. Right now much of Central Mississippi can mainly expect rain showers so right now our focus for any type of ice accumulations/sleet accumulations will be in the areas of the Delta and North Mississippi. Elsewhere in the state rain showers are forecast and temperatures look to stay at or just above freezing. So to summarize areas of North Mississippi and the Delta region should monitor the weather closely as hazardous weather is a good possibility. Areas of Central Mississippi can mainly expect rain showers with temperatures mainly above freezing. We will continue to update you with the latest forecast and information concerning the potentially hazardous winter weather expected for our area.
