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 shortly before sunrise. This initial band of snow produced snow accumulations of 4 to 8 inches. Additional precipitation moved into the Mid-South later on in the morning and continued into the afternoon hours as the low pressure system tracked east. This area of precipitation fell in the form of sleet and eventually rain as temperatures rose above freezing. Some sleet accumulations occurred as well. Precipitation ended as flurries during the evening hours of February 8th into the early morning hours of February 9th, 2010. The snow covered roads created hazardous driving conditions which caused numerous accidents.
Event Narrative One to six inches of snow fell across Tunica County.
