Winter Weather Advisory
Statement as of 3:57 AM CST on March 05, 2015

... Winter Weather Advisory in effect until 3 PM CST this
afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Jackson has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory for freezing rain and sleet... which is in effect
until 3 PM CST this afternoon.

* Timing: the worst conditions are expected to materialize around or
just after daybreak and then start to taper off in the late morning
through early afternoon.

* Accumulation: a tenth to one quarter inch of ice... mainly on
elevated surfaces. Additional light sleet accumulation is
possible as well.

* Impacts: hazardous travel conditions will develop mainly on bridges
and overpasses. Much of the area will have temperatures near or
just below freezing when the precipitation falls... but areas that
see temperatures fall below 30 will have the worst travel issues.
A few power outages will be possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of sleet and
freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for
slippery roads and limited visibilities... and use caution while
driving.





Special Statement
Statement as of 5:58 AM CST on March 05, 2015

... Winter storm causing significant impacts this morning ...

At 555 am widespread sleet... mixed at times with freezing
rain... over much of the arklamiss region northwest of a line from
Brookhaven... to Forest... to Columbus. Temperatures were near or
below freezing... and hazardous travel conditions were either
occurring or developing in these areas. Particularly poor travel
conditions were reported in areas from Jackson west and north.
Mdot reported icing on roads and bridges in all counties along and
northwest of a Jackson... to Louisville... to Columbus line.

Periods of sleet... heavy at times with a few rumbles of
thunder... will continue over these same areas for the next several
hours. Of particular concern is the area from southwest and west
of Vicksburg... through Vicksburg and western and northern parts of
the Jackson Metro area... north through the lower Delta and north
central Mississippi. Radar and weather models indicate that
heavier sleet... mixed with some freezing rain... will likely occur
over the next few hours in these areas. More rapid accumulation of
sleet and ice could occur here... resulting in particularly poor
travel conditions and possibly some power outages due to icing on
trees and powerlines.

Northwest of this area in southeast Arkansas and the upper
Delta... precipitation will taper off somewhat and be primarily a
mix of light sleet and snow. Farther southeast in the Brookhaven
to Meridian corridor... temperatures will slowly fall toward
freezing... and some icy spots may develop on bridges and
overpasses due to freezing rain and sleet.
