    Wet Snow, Cold Rain Reach Part of South

    Part of the same storm that brought half a foot of snow to the Ozarks Thursday night survived the trip across the Mississippi River Friday.

    Although it's the middle of March, we are in a winter weather pattern. Temperatures have recently been below freezing at night and will dip to near freezing Thursday night.

    A few spots from Tennessee to northern Georgia can get a bit of wet snow or a wintry mix into Friday. While many areas will not get snow, many places will get an unusually cold rain for the middle of March.

    As a result, motorists and pedestrians should be on guard for slippery spots, especially on bridges and overpasses or any areas that are typically shaded on a sunny day.


    A complex storm will affect the area this weekend. There is the potential for severe weather in parts of the South Saturday into Palm Sunday. The odds favor the strongest storms to fire from the I-20 corridor to the Gulf Coast and not farther north over the I-40 zone.

    There is, however, the potential for locally heavy rain and flash flooding near and north of the severe thunderstorm zone, which could reach into part of the I-40 corridor. The most likely time for widespread heavy rain would be centered on Saturday night.
