As to snow amounts and timing, my target snow accumulation for the metro area is 1-2", less over north Mississippi and more up towards Tipton County and north. It should begin after midnight Thursday morning, accumulating as soon as it starts, with most of it ending by 7-9am as the cold front moves through. Not a significant snow as snow storms go... However, behind the front, cold air will whip in on gusty northwest wind, creating some blowing snow conditions during the day as gusts reach 30 mph, and temps will fall through the 20s in the afternoon, reaching a low in the lower teens Friday morning with wind chill readings near zero. Very cold Arctic conditions will persist through the weekend. Please take all precautions against the cold AHEAD of this storm, rather than after the temperature has dropped into the single digits.
