Cold Weather Approaching


Get ready for this winter storm as it moves into the area late Thursday as temps will drop 40 to 50 degrees within hours. The Meridian area will have a slight chance of snow before midnight. The temperature will drop to 9 to 11 degrees, wind chills will fall between -10 and -1, wind gust will be around 35 mph.


Take this storm serious and prepare now by winterizing your home and car. Please prepare your pets and check on the elderly in your community.


HARD FREEZE WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM LATE THURSDAY NIGHT
THROUGH LATE SATURDAY NIGHT...

* WHAT...Sub-freezing temperatures as low as 7 above possible.

* WHERE...Portions of southeast Arkansas, northeast Louisiana
  and central, east central, north central, northeast,
  northwest, southwest and west central Mississippi.

* WHEN...From late Thursday night through late Saturday night.

* IMPACTS...A prolonged period of subfreezing temperatures may
  cause pipes to burst. Bitterly cold temperatures and wind
  chills will result in hypothermia and become life-threatening
  to those with prolonged exposure or without access to adequate
  warmth.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To prevent
freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should
be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have
in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-
ground pipes to protect them from freezing.

Ensure that space heaters or other alternative heating sources
are at least three feet from anything flammable, are not left
unattended, and have sufficient ventilation to prevent carbon
monoxide poisoning.
