The steady march of sleet and snow into area of Mississippi has led to a number of closings, including more than a dozen school districts.

The wintry weather was expected to move east Thursday afternoon, after dumping as much as three inches of snow in southern and central Mississippi, with much improved conditions on Friday.

A winter storm warning remains in effect until 6 p.m. Periods of light rain, mixed with snow and sleet at times will remain possible over east central Mississippi Thursday, including Meridian and Hattiesburg. Heavier precipitation is expected early Thursday afternoon.

    The closings were only because there might be snow and ice. If there's no snow or ice, there's no reason to close school. Kids (and parents), prepare for school Friday and GO.

    I don't know about Scott County. Those guys had more 'weather' than Meridian. But doesn't it stand to reason that if Lauderdale County Schools--that means West Lauderdale, Northeast, Clarkdale and Southeast for all of you who can't figure that out---, MCC, and Lamar are returning to school Friday that Meridian and Calvary and any other close schools are too?! Some MCC students have to travel from other areas to get there and the county school bus routes are longer....if they can make it to school, then Meridian people can. Is the light on and there's just nobody home in our community?!
