Jackson, Miss.

Areas of north Mississippi could see 3 inches of snow late Monday through noon Tuesday.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather warning for north Mississippi and an advisory for central areas through Tuesday.

John Moore, III, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Memphis, Tenn., says models are giving various readings, so it's difficult to pinpoint the timing and exact amounts.

He says there could also be some ice mixed in with the snow.

Moore says the snow should be gone completely Wednesday.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation and the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency are urging resident to get prepared and stay aware of changing road conditions as weather moves through the area.

Both agencies will be following weather conditions through the day Monday.
