Sunshine replaces snow across north Mississippi

Mostly clear skies and warming

temperatures greeted Missisippians today (Saturday) after a winter

storm system brought snow to several northern and central counties.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol had reported icing on some roads

and bridges Friday night but conditions were expected ti improve

rapidly as temperatures climbed out of the 20s.

Eric Carpenter with the National Weather Service in Jackson says

5 to 7 inches of snow blanketed areas from Cleveland northward to

Memphis, Tennessee. The snow moved in late yesterday (Friday) and

continued during the evening hours.

Counties in the northeast saw 3 inches or less accumulation,

including 2½ inches at Tupelo, 3 inches at Corinth an inch at

Amory.

Carpenter says areas south of the Greenville saw less total

accumulation. And along the Interstate 20 corridor, a mostly light

dusting of snow was all that remained this morning (Saturday

morning).

In the Jackson area, where sunshine has replaced Friday's

overcast skies, only a light accumulation of snow remained on

rooftops and other exposed surfaces. Snow reports were received as

far south as the Natchez area.
