Ice Accumulating on Some Mississippi Roads

Ice accumulated on some north Mississippi roads Thursday and officials warned the hazardous conditions could push further south, especially into northern portions of the WTOK viewing area.

National Weather Service meteorologist Joanne Culin said there probably wouldn't be much accumulation in central Mississippi and south of Interstate 20.

Still, she warned that temperatures could be in the teens Friday night so there's still a chance of patches of ice on roads in much of Mississippi.

A hard freeze warning was issued from Thursday night through Sunday.

Culin says wind chills could dip below zero in the next few days in north Mississippi and actual high temperatures aren't expected to rise above freezing through at least Sunday.

Numerous public schools and colleges were closed Thursday.
