Potential for light freezing rain

From the NWS-Memphis:

…LIGHT FREEZING RAIN POSSIBLE ACROSS THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE MID-SOUTH ON MONDAY AND MONDAY NIGHT…

A COLD AIRMASS CONTINUES TO FILTER INTO THE MID-SOUTH THIS EVENING BEHIND A COLD FRONT THAT EXTENDS ACROSS NORTH CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI. TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO FALL TO NEAR OR JUST BELOW FREEZING BY EARLY MONDAY MORNING ACROSS AREAS ALONG AND NORTH OF INTERSTATE 40.

A SERIES OF WEAK UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCES WILL MOVE ACROSS THE AREA ON MONDAY AND MONDAY NIGHT. THIS WILL ALLOW LIGHT PRECIPITATION TO REDEVELOP ACROSS MUCH OF THE MID-SOUTH BY MID-MORNING MONDAY…CONTINUING INTO MONDAY NIGHT. TEMPERATURES MAY REMAIN NEAR THE FREEZING MARK THROUGH AT LEAST EARLY MONDAY AFTERNOON ALONG THE INTERSTATE 40 CORRIDOR…INCLUDING THE CITIES OF MEMPHIS AND JACKSON. THIS MAY RESULT IN A PERIOD OF LIGHT FREEZING RAIN WHICH COULD RESULT IN ICY SPOTS ON BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES…RESULTING IN HAZARDOUS TRAVEL.

ALTHOUGH THE POTENTIAL FOR LIGHT FREEZING RAIN AND ICY TRAVEL APPEARS TO BE INCREASING…THERE STILL REMAINS SOME UNCERTAINTY WITH RESPECT HOW FAR SOUTH FREEZING TEMPERATURES WILL REACH. PLEASE REMAIN UP TO DATE ON THE LATEST FORECAST AND THE POTENTIAL FOR LIGHT ICING. FREEZING RAIN ADVISORIES MAY BECOME NECESSARY FOR PORTIONS OF THE MID SOUTH ON MONDAY AND MONDAY NIGHT.
