Episode Narrative A strong upper level trough dropped south out of the plains and helped to evolve a surface low pressure system across the northern Gulf of Mexico which then intensified as it lifted into the southeast United States. This upper trough slowed and intensified across the Lower Mississippi River Valley Friday afternoon, and brought a large swath of rare March snow to some of the region. The heaviest snow fell mainly to the northwest and north of the National Weather Service Jackson forecast area. However, a decent section of the northwest and north central portion of the service area received anywhere from 2 to 6 inches of snow. The heaviest occurred across extreme northern Chicot County where Dermott measured around 5 inches and then across Bolivar County where 3-6 inches occurred.
Event Narrative Heavy snow occurred across southeast Carroll County during the late evening hours. Around Vaiden, 2 to 3 inches fell.
