Episode Narrative Winter precipitation struck the ArkLaMiss again for the second time in about a week. A continued cold airmass remained in place over the region thanks to several rounds of cold air intrusions over the ArkLaMiss. Moisture increased over the area ahead of an upper level disturbance. Precipitation began moving in from the west during the morning hours of Feb 9th. The Mississippi Delta saw only snow and had a dusting of snow on the ground by the noon hour. The remainder of the ArkLaMiss began as rain and slowly transitioned to a rain/snow/sleet mix as the morning and afternoon progressed. Temperatures slowly began to fall over the region and the rain transitioned to snow across the I-20 corridor by mid afternoon. As the upper level disturbance tracked east across the area, precipitation continued across the region with the Mississippi Delta continuing to see all snow, and areas along the Highway 84 corridor seeing all rain. The section in the middle of the ArkLaMiss, generally along the I-20 corridor, ended up being in the mixed precipitation zone. Temperatures flirted with the freezing mark and rain transitioned to snow, but generally not long enough in the Jackson area to accumulate very much. Snow accumulation was greater in Vicksburg and then over to Meridian, but the Jackson metro area was just too warm just above the surface which enabled the snow to melt enough into a cold rain. Some locations in far northern Mississippi saw snow amounts of 7 to 8 inches. Overall, total snowfall amounts within in the Jackson service area were generally 4 to 6 inches. This was generally along the Highway 82 corridor, with the highest snowfall amount of 6 inches being reported near Winona and Starkville. Snowfall of 2 to 4 inches fell from Southeast Arkansas through northern Madison County to northern Lauderdale County. Further south, along the I-20 corridor, amounts were around one half of an inch in locations that saw more rain than snow. The wintry weather resulted in hazardous driving conditions and numerous accidents were reported across the area.
Event Narrative Heavy snow, between 2-4 inches fell across the county. Many accident were reported due to the slick roads.
