Mississippi Skies: Winter returns today

Published 1:30 am Friday, February 17, 2023

The storm system certainly came in as expected the past 36 or so hours. The National Weather Service will be busy with survey teams for the next few days tracking tornado and other damage reports. There are several places where tornadoes are suspected, including Ripley, Smithville, Mize, and Lincoln County.

Today will be quite chilly and breezy, and many of us will return to freezing temperatures again the next couple of mornings. After this morning, we will have a sunshine in the forecast!
