A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for the Memphis metro area until 6pm as well as the Winter Storm Warning for portions of northeast MS and Hardeman, McNairy, and Chester counties in TN.

A light mix of snow/sleet/ice will occur for a few more hours before tapering off late this afternoon - resulting in icy spots in roads and limited visibilities, adding to travel headaches.

The wintry mix is part of a major storm system affecting the southeast, Mid Atlantic and eventually the northeast. This system is slowly moving eastward and out of the MidSouth, but if travels take you towards Georgia or the Carolinas - be prepared for delays.

Our forecast should improve after a cold night. Mostly cloudy skies and 24 degrees.  Tomorrow's forecast comes complete with sunshine and temperatures above freezing and into the 40s! Hang on, it gets better, mid 50s by this weekend!!
