Winter Weather Advisory and Freeze Warnings issued for parts of SW Louisiana

Snow flurries are possible Friday morning on the North Shore according to forecasters with the National Weather Service. A winter weather advisory was issued Thursday morning in advance of another cold front

Winter certainly reared its head in Beaufort County Thursday morning, with temperatures in the 40s and a steady rain punctuating the cold, begging the question, could we soon see snow in the area?

This includes areas from Louisiana to parts of Alabama, Georgia and the Carolinas.

With bridges and overpasses becoming slippery for the Friday morning commute, make sure to drive slowly and carefully, and leave with extra time to spare. The chance of precipitation is only 30 percent.

A Winter Weather Advisory is now in effect for the Florida parishes in southeast Louisiana and most counties in southern Mississippi. We are going to see temperatures moderate some early in the week, but our next cold front looks to bring our next shot of much colder air into the state by midweek. Temperatures in the Cobb area are expected to be in the high 30s, and the chance of precipitation is 90 percent. That trend continues Sunday with a high of 41 degrees and a forecast nightly low of 21. "Black ice" issues will likely linger into Saturday morning.

Nobody should be driving summer interstate speeds in winter weather.

Our Thursday will be a cloudy and cold day with periods of rain.

Forecasters said uncertainty still remains about the amount of snow that will fall. Total accumulations of a quarter to a half inch are expected, primarily on grassy and elevated surfaces, with locally higher accumulations up to 1 inch possible in the higher elevations of East Alabama.
