Episode Narrative A small ice storm occurred across the region on January 25 with freezing rain observed across the northern half of the service area. This occurred as a arctic high pressure settled over the Ohio Valley and shallow cold air filtered into region. While the cold air was moving in, an area of low pressure was taking shape across the northern Gulf of Mexico and helped to produce widespread light rain over the area. Across the northern portions of the forecast area, temperatures were below freezing when the light rain fell and good ice accumulations occurred for areas generally along and north of a line from Rayville Louisiana to Lexington Mississippi to West Point Mississippi. The icing was not very heavy, but problems occurred across the areas that did receive around a quarter inch of ice. Numerous accidents occurred from icing on bridges and overpasses with one fatality in Grenada County. Trees and power lines did accumulate some ice, but the ice was not heavy enough to cause much damage.
Event Narrative Around one quarter inch of ice accumulated slowly through the day with icing being worst across area roads. Accidents were plentiful across the parish with some icing in trees and on power lines.
