The historic winter of 2014 continues as officials have again issued warnings ahead of possible winter weather in areas of the state where such events are relatively rare.
The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency is asking citizens to be aware of the forecast of winter weather in Central and South Mississippi this morning into this afternoon.
The National Weather Service says that areas along and south of I-20, down to the U.S. Highway 98 corridor could see light snowfall with up to an inch of accumulation. Areas north of I-20 could see flurries and a light dusting of snow. This could create hazardous driving conditions in some areas, especially on bridges and overpasses.
Temperatures in the central part of the state should hover around the low to mid 30s throughout the day. Temperatures further south will remain in the low to mid 40s, and areas could see some wintry mix and rainfall.
