Mississippi Skies: Thawing to begin today

Published 6:30 am Sunday, December 25, 2022

Parts of Mississippi that haven’t been above freezing for several days will begin to thaw today, kicking off a stretch that will have spring-like weather by the end of the week, including the possibility of storms.

Christmas Day will be beautiful for much of the state. The increased temperatures are good news for utilities struggling to keep up with higher demand levels, but windchills will still be quite brisk in many areas.
