NWS: One to three inches of snow expected for areas north of I-40

MEMPHIS, Tenn. —  The Mid-South is gearing up for snow!

The latest information from the National Weather Service has the entire WREG viewing area under a Winter Weather Advisory from 6 a.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday. Some areas further north will be under the advisory until noon Thursday.

WREG’s Todd Demers said the winter weather will begin to push through around midday Wednesday and will linger throughout the overnight hours. The heaviest of this snowfall will be seen across portions of northeast Arkansas, the Missouri Bootheel and northwest Tennessee north of I-40. In that area, residents could see anywhere from one to three inches of snow.

Here in the Memphis metro area we can anything from just a “dusting” of snow to around an inch.

The National Weather Service said there is also the possibility of ice accumulation from Memphis and Jackson south into Mississippi. Those are expected to be light as well, but drivers need to be aware that there could be slick spots on the roadways.

The precipitation is expected to end around noon on Thursday.

As always, residents are encouraged to keep an eye on the rapidly changing weather conditions throughout the day.
