…DUSTING OF SNOW…MAINLY ON GRASSY AREAS…POSSIBLE TODAY IN NORTHERN AND EASTERN SUBURBS OF MEMPHIS…

A COLD FRONT WILL SWEEP THROUGH THE AREA FROM THE WEST TODAY AND THIS EVENING. PRECIPITATION BEHIND THE FRONT WILL QUICKLY CHANGE TO SNOW ACROSS PORTIONS OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS…THE MISSOURI BOOTHEEL…MUCH OF WEST TENNESSEE NORTH AND EAST OF MEMPHIS…AND EXTREME NORTHEAST MISSISSIPPI. LIGHT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ARE POSSIBLE NORTH AND EAST OF THE CITY. ANY SNOW IN THE EXTREME SOUTHEAST CORNER OF WEST TENNESSEE AND NORTHEAST MISSISSIPPI WILL NOT OCCUR UNTIL LATE THIS AFTERNOON OR EARLY EVENING.

ANY SNOW THAT DEVELOPS IS ONLY EXPECTED TO LAST FOR ONLY A COUPLE OF HOURS AT MOST… PRODUCING NO MORE THAN A DUSTING MAINLY ON GRASSY AREAS AND ELEVATED SURFACES.

TEMPERATURES WILL DROP INTO THE UPPER 30S AS THE SNOW OCCURS BUT WILL REMAIN ABOVE FREEZING. THIS IN COMBINATION WITH THE RECENT WARMTH WILL HELP TO KEEP TRAVEL PROBLEMS TO A MINIMUM. STAY TUNED TO NOAA ALL-HAZARDS RADIO AND MEMPHISWEATHER.NET FOR ANY UPDATES.
