Winter weather moving in tonight - last update of the night - WU
UPDATE #4: This is my last update of the night. The freezing rain should be entering the Memphis area within the next two hours. Soon after that, sleet should be mixed in.
Remember, a Winter Storm Warning is in effect until tomorrow afternoon and an Ice Storm Warning is in effect for parts of northern Mississippi. For more info during the night, consult the other pages of Weather Underground or go to the NWS-Memphis.
Be safe, everyone.
UPDATE #3 (9:42 PM): The AFD from Memphis just said that the first report of freezing rain in the Memphis CWA occured in the Missouri Bootheel at 8:45 pm. It goes on to say that precip in the Memphis Metro Area will begin as rain, then change over to freezing rain by midnight. Then, after 3 AM, it will begin to mix with sleet. Tomorrow, expect 1/4-1/2" of ice and 1" of snow/sleet.
UPDATE #2 (8:16 PM): Check out the precip moving through AR/OK! This image should be live. (Yes-this is moving toward Memphis)
UPDATE #1 (7:36 PM): The Short Term Forecast from WFO MEG shows that light rain is beginning to move into western Arkansas. This is not freezing at this time, as temps are in the upper 30s.
ORIGINAL POST (4:10 PM): Anyway, let me discuss the current situation. WFO MEG has upgraded the Winter Storm Watch to a Winter Storm Warning for most of the CWA from 10:00 PM tonight to 6:00 PM tomorrow. Areas around Jonesboro, Dyersburg, and Huntingdon will see 2-4 inches of snow and sleet, and areas south of this area will see around an inch of sleet and ice.
