Episode Narrative A low pressure system tracked east from Texas into Central Mississippi February 8th and 9th, 2010. Cold arctic air was already in place during the early morning hours of February 8th when a mesoscale convective snow band developed ahead of the approaching low pressure system over Central Arkansas. The band moved across East Central Arkansas into extreme North Mississippi and extreme Southwest Tennessee shortly before sunrise. This initial band of snow produced snow accumulations of 4 to 6 inches. Additional snow bands moved into the Mid-South later on in the morning as the low pressure system tracked east. Heavy snow from these bands fell across portions of Northwest Tennessee. Snow accumulations ranged from 4 to 8 inches with the heaviest falling between Dyersburg and Millington. Areas south and east of the heavy snow area saw precipitation change from snow to sleet and eventually to all rain as warmer air ahead of the low pressure system moved into the region. Some sleet accumulations occurred as well. Precipitation ended as flurries during the early morning hours of February 9th. The snow covered roads created hazardous driving conditions which caused numerous accidents.
Event Narrative Four inches of snow fell across Obion County.
