Friday will be a December snowfall to remember for much of southern Mississippi.
For the second time in a week the ground was covered with snow and ice. The first storm left mounds of snow covering outbuildings, vehicles and piling right up to the lake water’s edge. The pristine snow made the white ducks look dingy.
Freezing precipitation began before daybreak in parts of the Golden Triangle and the forecast called for the cold, ice and snow to get worse through at least noon today.
Precisely a week after a winter storm dumped four-to-eight inches of snow in the Golden Triangle, another storm will move into the area late this evening.
As snow accumulated Wednesday evening on the Golden Triangle, hazardous road conditions took a toll on area drivers and many residences experienced stretches of no electricity.
For Golden Triangle residents Wednesday evening, it was a rare sight: snow.
A winter storm warning is in effect for all of north Mississippi and the central part of the state is under a winter weather advisory.
A Massachusetts man has found a way to profit from the several feet of snow in his yard: He’s shipping it to people in warmer climates for the bargain price of $89 for six pounds.
Golden Triangle residents are likely to wake up to snow fall Wednesday, with as much as four inches accumulating before the weather system moves through the region Thursday morning.
