anticipated both nights with highs Wednesday remaining in the
upper 20s to near 30 degrees. Tuesday night through late Wednesday
morning wind chills are expected to be between -5 and 5 degrees
due to the combination of gusty north winds and the Arctic air
mass.

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of northeast
Louisiana, central Mississippi, east central Mississippi,
northeast Mississippi, and south central Mississippi.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The probability for widespread hazardous weather is low.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Light snow is expected across these areas Tuesday before ending
by late afternoon to early evening. Total storm accumulations of
around one inch area possible across most locations and travel
could be difficult due slick bridges and overpasses. However, most
of south-central Mississippi and the Mississippi Pine Belt will
probably only get a dusting of snow at most and should avoid most
of the travel issues. Road conditions in affected areas will
likely remain poor through Tuesday night due to very cold
temperatures.

A more significant bout of dangerous cold will come Tuesday night
through Wednesday night with lows in the teens anticipated both
nights with highs Wednesday only slightly above freezing, at best.
Tuesday night through late Wednesday morning wind chills are
expected to be in the single digits due to the combination of gusty
north winds and the Arctic air mass.
