GREENVILLE, Miss.–Parts of the Mississippi Delta were under a winter weather advisory Monday morning, but no accumulations had happened, according to National Weather Service Meteorologist Alan Campbell. Any freezing rain or sleet was expected to change over to rain during daylight hours.
“A lot of the activity is not even reaching the ground because there’s such a dry air mass sitting over the area,” he said.
Campbell said that there could be, especially on elevated surfaces, like bridges, perhaps a very slight accumulation that might make some roads slick.
Mississippi can expect the moisture level to increase and the chances for heavy rain later Monday and into Tuesday to amp up to near 100 percent.
Once that cold, heavy rain eases up and cooler temps move in late Tuesday and early Wednesday, the very slight possibility exists for some changeover to snow.
Campbell said with the ground already being wet and the ground temperature being above freezing, the likelihood that any would accumulate would be low.
