Winter Storm Warning
Statement as of 3:57 AM CST on March 05, 2015

... Winter Storm Warning in effect until 3 PM CST this afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Jackson has issued a Winter Storm
Warning for freezing rain and sleet... which is in effect until 3 PM
CST this afternoon. The Winter Weather Advisory is no longer in
effect.

* Timing: the worst conditions are expected to materialize around
daybreak and taper off late morning into early afternoon.

* Accumulation: around a quarter inch of ice accumulation expected
and sleet accumulations up to a half an inch.

* Impacts: hazardous travel conditions will develop... especially 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 most
widespread travel issues. A few power outages will be possible as
well.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of sleet and ice are
expected or occurring. Strong winds are also possible. This will make
travel very hazardous.

Special Statement
Statement as of 3:01 AM CST on March 05, 2015

... Winter storm to cause deteriorating conditions across the
arklamiss region early this morning...

At 3 am numerous areas of sleet and freezing rain were occurring
across southeast Arkansas... northeast Louisiana and northwest
Mississippi... generally along and northwest of a line from Winnsboro
Louisiana... to Yazoo City... to Kilmichael. Road conditions were
deteriorating across this area... particularly in southeast
Arkansas... extreme northeast Louisiana... and northwest and north
central Mississippi where temperatures had fallen to the 25 to 30
degree range... and accumulations of sleet and ice were being reported
on roads by law enforcement and transportation departments.

Widespread wintry precipitation extended well to the west into
eastern Texas. This precipitation will continue to spread across the
arklamiss region for the next several hours. Occasionally heavy sleet
and freezing rain... along with a few rumbles of thunder... can be
expected. These periods of heavy precipitation will cause quick
accumulations of sleet and ice which will further worsen Road
conditions and potentially cause ice accumulations on trees and
powerlines... potentially resulting in power outages.

Cold air will continue to push southeast across the region through
the early morning hours... with the freezing line expected to reach
along a line from Port Gibson... to Clinton... to Columbus by around 6
am. Northwest of this line... precipitation will change to freezing
rain and some sleet... and icing of some elevated surfaces including
bridges and overpasses can be expected.
