Cold weather will be the rule for the area over the next several days across Mississippi and Western Alabama. This will be the latest in a series of cold air blasts that we have seen move into our area form Canada and The Arctic Circle. We will see air temperatures stay in the unseasonably cold 30s for our Monday. We will see temperatures drop off into the lower to middle 20s by late in the afternoon and into the early evening. Along with strong northerly winds throughout the day . . . . . we will see wind chill temperatures in the single digits and teens for most of the day. Overnight lows for our Monday night will be around 10 to 15 degrees. Daytime highs for our Tuesday will be in the lower to middle 20s. Still more cold air in store for our Wednesday . . . . . morning lows will start off in the 6 to 12 degree category and we should warm up in the afternoon to near the freezing mark.
Albeit, snow will only be in the form of flurries over Northern sections of Mississippi and Western Alabama on our Monday. We will see a much better chance for some snow and freezing rain just to our south, along coastal sections of the Gulf of Mexico. Some areas down in that portion of The Southeastern United States could see an accumulation of several inches of snow and ice on Tuesday and into Tuesday night. Even the Panhandle of Florida may get into the action.
