Jackson, Miss. Officials in Mississippi are urging residents to prepare for a blast of freezing weather expected to hit the state beginning Sunday night.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency says motorists should check antifreeze levels, batteries, lights, brakes and heaters and to keep at least a half tank of fuel.

There's a possibility of light snow Sunday night in north Mississippi, where temperatures could hit single digits.

South Mississippi officials say they will open cold-weather shelters as temperatures there are expected to drop into the 20s Sunday night.
