Hazardous weather outlook for central Mississippi

This hazardous weather outlook is for central Mississippi, northeast Louisiana, and extreme southeast Arkansas.

Widespread rain is expected Monday night into Tuesday morning. A few thunderstorms will be possible, particularly along and south of Interstate 20. One half to one inch of rainfall is expected. Northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph will affect the region on Tuesday. A lake wind advisory will be required for much of the region, and a wind advisory could become necessary for larger lakes. A strong cold front will move across the region combining with quickly falling temperatures on Tuesday to result in wind chill readings in the teens north of Interstate 20 and wind chill readings in the 20s further south.

Snow accumulation is expected across the area Thursday night through early Friday as an upper level disturbance and gulf low combine to bring wintry weather to the region. Some parts of the forecast area may see up to 2 to 4 inches.

Everyone is urged to stay up to date on the latest forecast and outlooks concerning this potential heavy snow event.
