Watches & Warnings

Wind Chill Advisory, Winter Weather Advisory
Issued: 6:03 AM CST Jan. 16, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect from noon today to
6 am CST Wednesday...
... Wind Chill Advisory now in effect from midnight tonight to
11 am CST Wednesday...

* what... precipitation initially in the form of a wintry mix of
light rain, sleet, and snow will gradually turn into light snow
across the region late this afternoon into tonight. Snow
accumulations are generally expected to be less than one half
inch, though isolated totals over one inch cannot be ruled out.
Elevated northerly winds will bring dangerous wind chills in the
single digits late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

* Where... across all of southeast Mississippi, and much of
southwest and south central Alabama and the northwest Florida
Panhandle away from the immediate coast.

* When... for the Winter Weather Advisory, from noon today to 6
am CST Wednesday. For the Wind Chill Advisory, from midnight
tonight to 11 am CST Wednesday.

* Additional details... temperatures will fall well below freezing
tonight, so any lingering light snow accumulations on area
roadways will cause slick travel conditions even after
precipitation ends. The cold wind chills will cause frostbite in
as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will
cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered
roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.

A Wind Chill Advisory means that cold air and the wind will
combine to create low wind chills. Frost bite and hypothermia can
occur if precautions are not taken. Make sure you wear a hat and
gloves.





Hard Freeze Warning
Issued: 4:15 AM CST Jan. 16, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Hard freeze warning now in effect from midnight tonight to
9 am CST Thursday...

* temperature... dropping to the mid teens to around 20 degrees.

* Impacts... sub-freezing temperatures could result in hypothermia
and will also be a danger for pets, livestock and sensitive
vegetation. Exposed water pipes will be at risk of freezing and
possibly bursting.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A hard freeze warning means temperatures of 20 degrees or lower
are expected. These temperatures can cause exposed water pipes to
burst. If you have any exterior open air piping, ensure the pipes
are adequately covered and open the faucet slightly for a small
stream of water overnight.

Check on elderly neighbors to make sure they have adequate heat.
Area shelters should continue to expect increased demand. Outdoor
pets and livestock should also have adequate warmth.

Take adequate safety precautions with heating systems, and make
sure to utilize Carbon monoxide detectors in enclosed spaces.
Ensure space heaters are not left unattended and are not used
near flammable materials such as curtains or bed coverings. Space
heaters account for one out of every three home heating fires and
four out of five home heating fire deaths.
