JACKSON, Miss.–North Mississippi did make it down to the single digits overnight Monday and early Tuesday and you will have one more night of extremely cold weather, but the turnaround is coming and rain is coming back, too.
Tuesday morning Southaven reported 9 degrees, Tupelo 8, Jackson 17, Greenville 14, Brookhaven 16. Winds were calm, so wind chills were not expected to be far below the actual temps.
Today’s forecast for north Mississippi says highs in the mid to upper 20s and near freezing central and south, and a good bit warmer on the coast. Tonight it is still expected to be in the teens, so don’t let up on your extreme cold precautions just yet.
There is also a chance for freezing rain and maybe some sleet or snow north for Wednesday night into Thursday.
But, temps will be on the rise Wednesday, with central possibly reaching 50. North will be near 40. By the time Thursday and Friday come around, temps will be much warmer and thunderstorms move into the state.
