01/06 Ryan’s “Frozen Coast” Friday Night Forecast

We’ve seen rain since late last night, but that rain will begin to take on a more frozen quality in the coming hours which will lead to dangerous travel conditions. The rain has already moved East out of the area by this time, and gusty winds from the North will continue to bring cold & dry air into South MS. As the temperatures begin to fall, all the rain we’ve seen will begin to turn to ice (especially around bridges and overpasses), so please avoid travel unless absolutely necessary tonight. We’re under a wind chill advisory until tomorrow morning, so “feels like” temperatures will be in the low teens just before sunrise. Needless to say, long term exposure is not recommended, and you’re encouraged to check on any elderly neighbors in rural areas (especially if they don’t have central heat). The daytime high for Saturday will climb into the low 40s, but expect an even colder night.
