Mississippi Skies: Another chilly day with freezing temps overnight

Published 1:30 am Saturday, March 18, 2023

It’s hard to believe we were experience record highs just a few days ago after the drastic temperature drop Friday. We’re going to have another chilly day today across the Magnolia State and some of us will stay under a thick covering of clouds through later this evening.

Everyone will clear out in time for cold to freezing temps tonight with freeze watches and warnings stretching from north Mississippi to south Mississippi. Even the Gulf Coast is going to drop into the 30s tonight. Even colder air is moving in for Sunday night with “significant freeze warnings” already in place for some parts of the state. Be sure to protect people, pets, plants, and pipes.

It’s also going to be quite breezy across the state today.
