The end of the rainfall is in sight, but before the sun returns, we will see the possibility of some snowfall!
For Wednesday, temperatures will hover in the lower 40s for most of the afternoon. We will continue to see the on and off rain, but no wintry precipitation is expected for Wednesday.
Things will get interesting as we head into early Thursday morning. The latest computer models show some cold air moving in from the west overnight. These same computer models also show some leftover moisture from today's rains. As these two begin to overlap, it's looking more likely that some snowfall will be the result!
The current thinking is the heaviest snowfall will occur along and north of I-20. These areas could see upwards of 1" of snow.
Some light snow showers are possible between I-20 and Hwy 98, including Hattiesburg and Laurel. For areas south of Hwy 98, only a few flurries are expected.
Widespread accumulations don't look likely at this point. Temperatures will remain above freezing Thursday, keeping both accumulations low and travel concerns to a minimum.
The greatest chance for snow will come between midnight and 10 am Thursday morning.
These marginal snowfall events can be very tough to forecast, and some details could still change.
