...Winter Storm to impact the Mid-South This Weekend...
A potent upper level low pressure system will move into the
Mid-South this weekend. Rain will begin to mix with snow across
Northeast Arkansas and the Missouri Bootheel Saturday afternoon
and will change to all snow by sunset Saturday evening. The
transition from rain to snow will occur across the rest of the
Mid-South from west to east Saturday Night into Sunday as colder
temperatures spread into the region. It is too early to pinpoint
exact amounts and locations of the heaviest snowfall. Snowfall
amounts will be heavily dependent on the exact track of the
system. At this time, it appears the greatest potential for a
moderate to significant snowfall will occur across areas along and
north of the Tennessee and Mississippi state line. However, all
the Mid-South will likely see winter weather impacts with this
system. Travel will become hazardous Saturday Night into Sunday.
Stay tuned to the latest forecasts.
