Colder days are coming to Brookhaven

Freezing rain will be possible in the area through this afternoon as colder air moves into the region, according to the National Weather Service. Greatest impacts are expected to occur in the upper portions of the Delta, where ice accumulation of a quarter inch is possible.

Light freezing rain, resulting in light icing of bridges and overpasses, is possible generally along and north of a line from Natchez to Jackson to Columbus on Friday morning and again Friday night into Saturday morning.

Arctic air is expected to begin reaching the area this weekend, expanding and persisting into early next week. This could end up being a long duration of very cold conditions and dangerous wind chill readings.
