Thursday...

The National Weather Service in Jackson has issued a Winter Storm
Warning for rain... sleet... and snow... which is in effect from 7
PM Wednesday to 1 PM EST Thursday. The Winter Storm Watch is no

late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Snow should lighten
and taper off by Thursday afternoon.

* Snow and sleet accumulations of 3 to 7 inches... with ice
accumulations of less than a tenth of an inch.
