• Wintry mix possible this weekend across the Mid-South


    A cold rain is still expected for Saturday – our far north counties will continue to have a strong potential for rain to transition to a freezing mix: sleet/freezing rain/snow.  

    For that reason, a Winter Weather Advisory is active for much of Saturday.

    New data just in is pointing towards a growing threat of sleet/freezing rain from midnight Saturday into roughly 6 a.m. Sunday.


    If you live north and northwest of Memphis (in eastern Arkansas and west Tennessee), be very careful and very aware late Saturday into early Sunday.

    Roadways will be a concern;  if accumulation occurs, downed trees and powerlines must also be monitored.

    Temperatures – just a few degrees – will be critical for this event.

    The FOX13 viewing area has a complicated temperature profile.

    Temps are expected to trend “below” freezing more often north/northwest of Memphis:  “close” to freezing in Memphis;  “generally above” freezing south/southwest of Memphis.

    Stay tuned to all new developments this weekend from Severe Weather Center 13.
