Episode Narrative A surface low pressure system developed along the Rio Grande Valley in Texas on Sunday, 1/9/11, and tracked northeastward along the Gulf Coast as a upper level disturbance moved into the Mid-South during the evening hours of 1/9/11. Cold air was already in place across the Mid-South behind a cold front that had moved through two days prior. As a result, precipitation associated with the system began in the form of snow mixed with sleet at times Sunday Evening 1/9/11 but quickly changed over to all snow. The snow tapered off during the morning hours of 1/10/11. Widespread snow amounts of 4 to 8 inches occurred across North Mississippi with a isolated band of 8 to 12 inches occurring just south of the Tennessee State Line from near Ashland, to Corinth, to Iuka in Northeast Mississippi. Roadways became hazardous due to the snow, as a result, numerous accidents occurred across the area. One fatality occurred from the numerous accidents.
Event Narrative Five inches of snow fell across Tunica County.
