MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the entire WREG viewing area for Wednesday. The alert is active until 6 p.m. Thursday.

The agency said the latest round of winter weather will bring up to six inches of snow, freezing rain and sleet to the Mid-South Wednesday into Thursday. Ice accumulation is also possible making travel in the area hazardous.

WREG’s Tim Simpson said light snow started making its way into the Mid-South around noon. Additional accumulation will continue throughout the afternoon and into the overnight hours. A break in the snow will likely take place around midnight, but then more precipitation is espected around 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. Thursday.

Most of the activity should be out of here around noon.

The forecast models still suggest the Mid-South could see anywhere from an additional two to seven inches of snow depending on the location.

Temperatures will continue to be low with some models predicting the Mid-South will only reach around 30 degrees for the next few days. Saturday and Sunday will bring temperatures in the 40s and 50s, helping the area to thaw out.
