...BLACK ICE COULD AFFECT PORTIONS OF SOUTH-SOUTHEAST MISSISSIPPI
TONIGHT THROUGH EARLY SATURDAY MORNING...

Due to recent snowfall today, wet roadways and especially bridges
and overpasses could become slick overnight. As snow ends and
skies clear later tonight, temperatures will gradually drop well
below freezing. This could lead to the development of black ice
on area roadways, especially secondary or less traveled roads.
Black ice is nearly impossible to see and roadways may appear wet.
Please use extreme caution, especially on bridges, overpasses and
around curves. Allow plenty of stopping distance and avoid
braking suddenly.
