Light snow, more hazardous driving in Thursday forecast for central Mississippi

26weajpg-21c432e2cc9ab489(AP) Mississippi residents in central and parts of south Mississippi could see light snowfall on Thursday.

The National Weather Service said Wednesday that areas along and south of Interstate 20, down to the U.S. Highway 98 corridor, could see snowflakes with up to an inch of accumulation. Areas north of I-20 could see snow flurries and a light dusting of snow.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency says the winter conditions could create hazardous driving conditions in some areas, especially on bridges and overpasses.

Forecasters say temperatures in the central part of the state should hover around the low to mid 30s throughout Thursday. Temperatures further south will remain in the low to mid 40s, and areas could see some wintry mix and rainfall.

Along the coast, there’s a 30 percent chance of rain — mainly between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The high will be 43 with a low of 35.
