Winter Weather Advisory, Wind Chill Advisory

Statement as of 10:16 PM CST on January 15, 2018

Expires 11:00 AM EST on January 17, 2018


... Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect from noon Tuesday to
6 am CST Wednesday...
... Wind Chill Advisory remains in effect from midnight Tuesday
night to 10 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 Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday
night. 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 Tuesday to 6
am CST Wednesday. For the Wind Chill Advisory, from midnight
Tuesday night to 10 am CST Wednesday.

* Additional details... temperatures will fall well below
freezing Tuesday night, 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. Frostbite and hypothermia can
occur if precautions are not taken. Make sure you wear a hat and
gloves.





Hard Freeze Warning

Statement as of 10:19 PM CST on January 15, 2018

Expires 11:00 AM EST on January 17, 2018


... Hard freeze warning remains in effect from midnight Tuesday
night to 10 am CST Wednesday...

* temperature... dropping to the mid teens to around 20 degrees
across southeast Mississippi and interior portions of
southwest and south central Alabama.

* 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.
