Winter Blast Forecast for Mississippi

PEARL – The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency and the National Weather Service are asking residents to prepare for possibly treacherous winter weather conditions this weekend. A blast of arctic air will move into the state from the northeast and collide with ample Gulf moisture Sunday.

NWS forecasters say some areas in the northern part of the state could see 4 to 8 inches of snow, with a wintry mix of snow, sleet, ice and rain in the southern half of the state.

“Because of the uncertainty in the forecast it is important that all of our residents monitor the latest weather forecasts and conditions for their area,” said MEMA Director Mike Womack. “Any type of wintry weather can create dangerous driving conditions and power outages to many communities.”

MEMA recommends the following safety tips during winter storms:

Stay home and do not drive on snowy or icy roads. Have a fully stocked emergency supply kit. Stay clear of downed power lines. Even if the electricity appears to have been turned off, leave the lines alone. Do not try to move them yourself. Only operate generators outdoors. Do not operate a generator inside your home or garage. Turn off all home appliances to prevent a surge once the power is turned on again. Be cautious when using alternative heat sources. Do not use a stove for heat because it can cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Letting water drip from a faucet during extremely cold weather can relieve water pressure and help prevent pipes of your home from bursting. If you suspect your pipes are frozen and may have burst, turn off your water at the main shut-off valve and call a plumber.
